Bob was truly one of the kindest and loving men I have ever known! I so enjoyed seeing his sports collection and memorabilia! Bob had such a tremendous love for Debra, his children, grandchildren and our God I know he is preparing a place in Heaven for each of us.
My deepest sympathy and love for my cousin Debra and all of the family!

I met Bob and Debra at the First Baptist Church of Weir over 40 years ago. He was a leader and a precious Brother in Christ. Hugs to Debra and the rest of the family.

Dear Lindsay and Family,
Please accept my family's heartfelt sympathy as you lose your Dad in such a tragic fashion. I have so many memories of how sweet your family is when you kids and my girls were all going to FHS.
We are praying for you!

Bob was a great friend and i am glad i got to be good friends with him. I got to know Bob when his son Ryan was playing baseball at Pitt State and it was great talking to him at the ballgames. He also drove me to and from work when he drove for general public transportation. We always enjoyed talking sports on our drives. I am so sorry that he passed away and i am thinking of his family in their time of need and he will be truly missed by everybody.

Bob, Debra, and family have been our friends for many years! We thought the world of Bob, and he was always very supportive of Mom; went above and beyond taking her the places she needed to go! He was so very proud of his kids and grandkids, and shared their many accomplishments with joy! He and Hoyt loved their sports, and enjoyed commenting on the current goings on. I know there will be a big gap because of this loss, but just remember he will still be there for you all in spirit! He and Debra have created a Great Legacy in their kids and grandkids! Love You All, Hoyt and Debby Johnson

Bob and I worked together at Elm Acres. We loved to visit about sports, (KU, The Royals, our kids/grandkids teams). I would talk about my girls and he would talk about his grandkids sometimes we would lose track of time and an hour had passed. His knowledge and love for sports shown in every conversation. He showed a genuine interest in my family. I consider Bob to be a good friend and although I was sad he moved to the City, I was so happy for him. He was so excited about living close to family and getting more time to watch his grandkids play sports. I miss him but thankful we get to keep up with each other on Facebook. He’s a great guy and I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
