Bob, Sharon, Jerry and I had wonderful times together when they lived on Dawnblush Court - beautiful memories that will live forever in our hearts and souls. Jerry was grateful for his friendship with Bob; I know he considered him the brother he always wanted.

Jerry wrote this piece for the 1987 Memorial Day Concert. I believe the sentiments apply here as well:

All of us who have lost loved ones know the searing pain of grief. We know how difficult—even impossible—it is to let go. Grief is our wound, the hole inside us left by each precious life that has been taken from us, an emptiness that, indeed, can never be filled by anyone else.
We go on with our lives. We must. But tonight,... let us be reminded that grief is a sacred wound. Let us respect our own grieving, for it is, after all, an expression of our love. .... Let us be assured that the feeling we call grief: the shock, the sadness, its anger and confusion, and, most of all, its loneliness, is our way of saying we love you.

I remember Bobby George as one of those scrappy Landolt boys who I hung around with in Mount Rainier in the 1950s. He was a couple years younger than me and his brothers Danny and Jerry, but he was always a welcome participant in our sandlot ball games and other activities. He was a bright kid in those days, and as I recall, after graduating from Archbishop Carroll High School he took advantage of an opportunity to teach English in Italy. Later on he received his law degree and enjoyed a successful career as an attorney. I know his passing brings sadness to all in his wonderful family, as it does to me and to all who knew him.

We were so saddened to hear the news of Bob's death. He was a wonderful friend and neighbor. He was fun loving and very kind, especially to the children. Our son, Tim, often spent many joyful hours at the Landolt's home. We all have fond memories of Bob. Our love and prayers are extended to the entire Landolt family.

We received the news of Bob’s passing with heavy hearts. He was a big teddy bear of a man, and the best neighbor anybody could want. He welcomed us into his home and made us feel like part of the family. The Landolt basement was the favorite place for the neighborhood kids to play. He is in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm deeply saddened to hear of this loss. Sending the whole family all my love and healing wishes. Bob was on my list of favorite people in the world. I am so grateful that the Landolt and Bradley families were neighbors for so long on Dawn Blush Ct. In addition to being a wonderful husband, father, neighbor, lawyer, friend...he was a great softball coach. Bob, you were one of the people who helped make my childhood so wonderful. You will be so greatly missed.
