My deepest sympathy to All the Reischman Family. Bob will be deeply missed. I remember the good times growing up at Mission Beach. Then when
the children were born at Mission. Running into Bob sleeping in his VW while hunting the Entiat in a snow storm. Cutting firewood with him and Lee Carter on the Rez. When he used to give my dad a bad time fishing the Stilly when they lived across the river from each other.

You will be greatly missed Bob. My you rest in peace.

To Jim, Tim, Dave and Jane and the entire Reischman Family. Please accept our deepest sympathy and prayers in the death of your Dad. Though I have met all of you when you were little ones, it's been years since I have seen you. However my siblings and I knew and spent a lot of time with Bob, Kay, Nancy, Sue, Tom and Mary when we were young. We always loved to go visit our cousins in Everett. I am also sorry I could not attend the funeral for Bob. Please know that you are all in my prayers. All our love,
Jerry and Janice (Reischman) Ostrem.

Through the years of friendship, we have been blessed to know the Reischman family. Bob is at the center of many fond memories: numerous fishing and hunting excursions, cutting hay, his gardening projects, feeding Brutus and the assorted cats, helping others, and watching the light in his eyes and smile as he proudly talked about his kids. To Jim, Tim, Dave, Jane and their families, Judy and extended family - our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal - love leaves a memory no one can steal. Judy, stay strong and most of all, remember the laughter!

Nothing is harder than to lose a family member. Bob was my uncle thru my Aunt Judy but I always enjoyed his smile. Christmas won't be the same without him but I know our family,will have amazing guardian angel looking over us. I wanted to say something that anyone could all relate how I felt. But due to the years he dedicated to the fire dept. Only prayer I see a need to say is the Fire Fighter Prayer.The Firefighter's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God, whenever flames may rage;

Give me strength to save some life, whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child before it is too late

Or save an older person from the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout,

And quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,

To guard my every neighbor and protect his property.

And if, according to my fate, I am to lose my life;

Please bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife.

Good Bye Uncle Bob!

Bob was a very good friend for many years. He was one heck of a fisherman Hunter and a very hard worker and I remember when he was a fireman in Seattle on his days off we cut cedar blocks and cedar fence post, he even worked in the woods with me sitting chokers. He was always looking for something to do never wanting to sit still. Melvin Molstad
