I have so many memories of Bob. He had so many stories to tell! The funny thing about Bobs stories were, you didn’t know until close to the end (or end) if they were real stories or just a little joke. You always had to have your guard up when Bob was telling a story, if you didn’t, you would be left holding your mouth open, like huh 🤔 or rolling your eyes 👀 like OMG or laughing your butt off😂

I could write a book of the memories I have about Bob. He was an all around genuine guy. Just make sure you were on his good side, because if you weren’t, the joke would be on you! Lol

I met Bob through my husband Ron Wagner. He and Bob had been friends for 40+ years! So of course I got to hear lots of their (sometimes mischievous) memories too!

Amongst all the memories I have of Bob, there is a particular one I have and will always hold close to my heart. My mom had moved in with Ron and I during her last few months here on earth. I think Bob had met my mom once before. He had come over to the house to hang with Ron. All of sudden Bob disappeared. I ask Ron where did Bob go, he said he wasn’t sure but he thought he might be in my moms room. Sure enough that’s where he was. He was sitting on the floor, next to her recliner talking to her and petting her sweet little dog Pepe. They were just talking away as if they both had known each other for a long time! Bob sat there talking to her for 30 minutes or more! My mom was a talker like Bob. She had to give her independence up and come live with us, because she needed a little help, not much, just enough. She gave up sitting in her lawn chair, with her sweet little dog Pepe, talking to her group of friends, nearly every night. That day, Bob took a little bit of his time to sit with my mom and do what she liked to do best, socialize! I will never forget that moment, for it touched my heart forever❤️

Thank you Bob for all the great memories & a great friendship! Until we meet again, your friend Lee Ann
