Uncle Bob, was a loving caring man. Uncle Bob sat me down and was teaching me the guitar at a young age. Still have the recording. His laughter and smile were infectious, couldn't help but smile. Always had to have a uncle Bob hug. He taught me so much. Racing, camping, bluegrass music. Words cannot begin to express the great loss our family has encountered. To my cousins, to my Aunt Rose, I love & miss you all deeply, yes unfortunately I do feel the same loss. Uncle Bob RIP till we meet again. Love Heather Jo.

Uncle Bob loved music singing and golf. I remember one summer Aunt Rose was having a garage sale. Right before Uncle Bob came home from work we wheeled his golf bag and his golf clubs out to the driveway. They were "for sale" I don't remember if he thought we were funny, we sure laughed!
We will miss him dearly.
