I remember Bob and Ruby when they built our our backyard fence. Esther, then 2 years old, picked a dandelion bouquet and gave it to Ruby. We will miss you, Bob. You were such a kind person and fun to talk with. Our condolences to his wife and rest of family members. You will be missed. And thank you for serving our country! ❤️

Dear Dillow Family,
My condolences to all on Bob’s passing. For so many years the Dillow Family’s doings were recounted by Ruby. Bob’s love and devotion to his entire family was only challenged by the opportunity to play a good round of golf! Bob was a kind man, always welcoming with a smile and firm handshake. May your loss be comforted in knowing he certainly lived a full life with so many rewards.

Uncle Bob was definitely one of a kind. I have many memories of Bob and Ruby coming to Greensburg to visit our family. I couldn’t wait for them to arrive.
Bob’s love of history is what I found extremely inspiring about him. He had so many stories to tell. It was a toss up between my dad and Bob on who could tell (or repeat) a story the most times!
Bob had a sense of humor that I just loved! I’m so glad that my kids were able to get to know him. He had a special bond with Kylee because of his love of the Waldron Mohawks! He loved to hear Kari sing and Adam always liked to talk “golf” with Bob.
I will miss Uncle Bob and his sweet disposition. I know that he isn’t suffering any longer. He is in Heaven and reunited with the love of his life, Ruby.
Bob meant the world to my mom, and I am so happy she shared such a special bond with her brother.
Willie and I send our love and hugs to all of you. May you find peace during this difficult time. We love you!
