I was a really good friend of Bob’s in high school and and after he left Ishpeming for the University of California.. I just heard of his passing and would like his family to know what a great guy and talented person he was. I am sure he will be missed.

I was not an athlete during high school and Bob was a few years older than me, but anytime I saw him or spoke to him he was always friendly and kind. What a talented and special man. We are fortunate that he hailed from our little town in the UP. RIP

Hailing from Ishpeming, Bob was, arguably, the best all around athlete to come out of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He was proficient at every sport he tried. I always looked up to him and as a person he was humble, personable , and considerate of others. He was the quintessential “good guy”. I will live with many fond memories of times shared with Bob. My sincere condolences to his entire family.

Bob was possibly the best athlete to come out of our city of Ishpeming, Michigan. Football, fast pitch softball, and basketball were all sports that he excelled in. I'm thankful that I had the chance to spend one year playing on the same fast pitch softball team as Bob. He will be greatly missed, not only in our city of Ishpeming but in the entire Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We live in the memory of our friends. Jesus is coming back to reunite us with our loved ones. My sincere sympathy to Bob's family.
