Bob was such a lovely man. We still cannot believe that he was a Drill Sergeant in the Air Force! He truly loved all of his family and his extended Kenna "outlaw" family. His kindness was unsurpassed. The one memory that is strongest in our minds is when we celebrated Mother's 90th birthday. During that time the family met to decide what would be the best living arrangement for her. A discussion followed and everyone voiced their opinion. Bob listened quietly and when the discussion was over, he spoke up and said that she would live with he and Dee Dee and would not go to a senior living home, no more discussion ... that was it. There are many children today who are more than happy to make the easy decision about where their parents will spend their last years, but not that many sons-in-law would show the love that he did and keep her close to her family members. He was truly a saint who walked among us for 85 years.
