This is such a great loss to the world. Bob and Teresa mean the world to my father, mother and our family. Both Bob and Teresa have the biggest, kindest and most generous hearts. My thoughts and Prayers are with Teresa and the rest of the family and friends who are feeling a great loss and emptiness in the world that Bob's bright, loving smile use to be. Thank you for giving so much not just to my father and mother but to us as their children and grand children. We promise Bob, while you watch over Teresa and your family from above. We will be here for her to help her through this unbearable pain of losing her best friend.
Love Roni and Jake.

Bob and I got our badges on the same day. We shared a lot of early memories at the old Brighton garage and others.
He's in the arms of his Saviour now. Rest in peace Bob.
