I will always remember Bob as one of the kindest, most congenial guy that I could have asked to work for. Glad your journey is over, and you are now finaly reunited with Barbara.

Uncle Bob was always a jovial spirit- He voluntarily keyed all my locks at the lake house for me, and every-time I'm there I think of him......

We will all surely miss Uncle Bob ~ with his smiling face and gentle demeanor.
