If you knew him you have no doubt of where he is spending eternity. I am sure Uncle Bob is smiling that ear to ear smile of his, dancing and praising his Savior with Billiie and all of his loved ones that have gone on before him. Thank you Uncle Bob for your life's testimony.

Dear Bruce, Barry and Bobby
I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad, but rejoicing for his gain. Uncle Bob and Aunt Willie truly left an impression on my life. I will never forget their smiling faces and how they always made me feel so special. They were so in love with each other and modeled joy no matter what their situation was. I am so thrilled that they are sharing eternity together with the family of God. May God bless you with all the happy memories you can contain and give you peace until you see them again.

Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I worked with Bob for 22 years at WBTV/Jefferson Productions. Bob was one of the finest men I ever worked with. He truly walked the Christian walk and lived his beliefs. A true Broadcasting Pioneer who helped put WBTV on the map. One of the Greatest Generation. His kind of man is rare these days.

Bruce, Barry, and the entire Dycus family, I was sorry to hear of your loss. I enjoyed knowing your dad for many years, he always had a great smile and a happy and uplifting outlook on life! He reminded me of my Grandfather, he chose to participate in life and not just sit back and watch it pass by. I am deeply sorry for you loss.

Bob was a dear sweet man who married my beautiful sister, and they loved each other with a passion. I'm so thankful that now they are celebrating together in heaven with Jesus and all of the family who have gone on before. Bob used to kid me about me sitting on his lap when he and Billie were dating. Both of them were very special to me, and I loved them dearly. They were an amazing example of a loving Christian couple.

Bobby, Barry, and Steven,
Your mom and dad were special people to us. With their visits to Camp Thunderbird to visit Edith and to take part in family camp, they became camp friends. What a wonderful couple they were. May your memories of them both bring you happiness and peace that overshadow your sadness. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of losing your dad.
Sincerely,
Bill and Mary Climer
