Just heard about Bob's death from Roger and Linda Rayle (Camp Michigania friends and A2 residents.) So very sorry to hear about it and hope you are doing ok. Was just thinking of you and Bob and his wry sense of humor and your own brand of funniness. Little did I know that Bob was entertaining up in Heaven. Take care. Miss you...Kathy Kershner

Dear Chris and Family-
I never had the pleasure of meeting you, but was fortunate to have known Bob many years ago in Tappan Jr. High and Ann Arbor High School. He made a point of staying in touch over the years, and one of the main reasons I was looking forward to the 50th AAHS reunion next July was to spend time again with Bob.
I will always remember his easy smile, his great sense of humor and the way he valued friendships, even those going back more than 50 years. I am so sorry for your loss.

So sad to see this today (11/13). Glad I had the chance to enjoy Bob's great company at the pre-reunion events at Zingerman's the last few years.

Dear Dailey family,Cindy and I were very sad to hear Of Bob's passing. We were shocked that it happened so quickly. I will always remeber how much fun we had at our annual smelt dip/golf trips to Walloon.His witty sense of humor was always appreciated. He was always such a pleasant and positive person to be around. He and I had some good rides back as well and we even listened to his daughters acappella CD one year and he was so proud of her teams performance. They were as good as a group as I`ve ever heard.Bob will sorely be missed. We are sorry that we won`t be at the service. Please take care. Chris. It was good to see you at the Uof M -MSU game.I`m sure Bob will be cheering for the Wolv's in heaven.Go Blue
