I was a patient of Doctor Stickrath and probably last saw him about 45 years ago. I remember when I was very young and very afraid of needles/shots, Doctor Bob would have me open my mouth and tell me that he was just giving me a "little pinch" so that I wouldn't feel anything when he put a filling in my tooth. He was very good with kids and pretty understanding and put up with me during my teen years.

I offer my sincere condolences to Bob Jr., Nancy and the rest of the family.
