I was so sorry to hear of the passing of my Uncle Bob. Some of my fondest childhood memories were of visiting my Aunt Grace, Uncle Bob and Cousins. I remember my Uncle Bob as a friendly quiet person with a very strong work ethic. My Uncle Bob helped make the Egle residence a fun place to visit. My condolences to the family.

My earliest memories of my Uncle Bob are of his work ethic. He never seemed to stop between projects. From toiling at his workshed in the mobile home park in Marysville, Michigan to making improvements to his beautiful home in Florida, he always seemed to be busy. He was a strong man, even throughout his wife's illness, caring for her with every fiber of his being. He continued the fight until he too needed family to continue working on his behalf. We will miss him greatly.

We love you Grace, Bob, Peggy, Jeannie, and Gracie
