I am absolutely heart broken to hear about Bob’s passing. He was such an amazing man, friend and neighbor. I am sure he is keeping the angels laughing and the others in eye roll with his jokes they’ve all heard now a few times. I’ll never forget his humor and friendship, and so deeply hope the best for Wanda in these hard time. God bless you all.

You will be missed! Remembering the beautiful times at your daughter Karen's playing cards and going out to Cracker Barrel.
It was always a fun time and watching you and your wife and how long you had been together loving each other, nurturing each other was always a blessing for me.
You are a beautiful man!
Love Lindy Antonides
My favorite scripture is Philippians 4 verses 8 and 9
Finally brethren whatsoever things are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and of a good report, if there is any excellent or anything worthy of praise , let your mind dwell upon these things!
Because the peace of God shall be with you.
