Bob was a loyal friend . He was always there if you needed help. We were both big “3 Stooges” fans. I will miss our conversations. He will be greatly missed. My condolences to Joe and your family.

Bob was such a quiet, but REALLY NICE guy in high school. He always had a sweet smile on his face. (We used to joke about being born just one day apart). I'm so sad to hear of Bob's passing. My deepest condolences to Bob's family and friends. Rest In Peace, Bob.❤️

Laughter. That was the skill I admired most in Bob: His ability to arouse it from others and his immense joy at expressing it himself. Bob seemed to thrive on the happy knowledge that his next joyful outburst might be just ahead, in the moment, waiting to be tickled into being, shared and remembered for years. Bob's laughter was a joy to behold and a gift to his friends and family.

Bob is the most humble, faithful servants I have ever known. He faithfully served at Calvary Chapel for many years. He has been with the church from the very beginning. Bob along with his good friend Dave Muckle who passed on last year would set up every Sunday School classroom and pray for each teacher and child at 6 am three hours before services would start. Bob will be greatly missed hear on earth. However, it won’t be goodbye...just see ya later Bob.
Grace & Peace
