Bob lived a life of 4 C'.... christianity, committment, challenge and caring for others. This was so evidenced in the deep love for his wife, daughters, grandchildren, relatives, extended family & friends. Bob is a man whose will be truly missed here on Earth but Heaven now gains one charming, witty addition. Bob, like John Wayne... you rode tall in the were bigger than life to us.

The yearly Kangaroo party at Larry's will be missing you, Bob. But, you know we will have you in our minds and hearts. I suspect that we will roast you "well" with a lot of precious memories.
