My husband, Jeff, and I visited Bob G. in Virginia many times over the years. We had a lot of fun over dinner at various places in the DC area, trips to the Kennedy Center or just hanging out at the house talking. I really enjoyed the time we spent with him over the years. Rest in Peace.

I have several fond memories of Bob G. I met Bob over 40 years ago. He was a good friend, a very giving person and part of our extended family. Many years ago, Bob took me to the Café Carlyle to see Bobby Short perform. He knew that was on my bucket list of things to do. It was great fun with a great guy; complete with a chocolate martini. Thank you Bob for being part of my life. Safe travels to a healthier and happier place.

Bob became a part of my life when he met and married my dear friend Jennifer. Over the years Bob and Jennifer created many memories for me. Always a great time , laughter, love and joy ! Jennifer always sent cards for every occasion. Before her passing she trained Bob to channel her habit. Since Jennifer left us all much too soon Bob was most accomplished in sending me beautiful ecards for every holiday. Remarkable, beautiful cards with an attached personal note . Bob’s last Christmas card shocked and saddened me , hurting my heart. I am blessed that Jennifer brought Bob
a wonderful, caring , thoughtful , man into the life of my God Daughter Wendy and family. He dearly loved this new family and continued to enjoy the love and treasured every moment with his grandchildren. Our world has lost a wonderful man , but Heaven and Jennifer have gained one great soul. 💔

Bob G. was a really nice man. We visited with him many times and was a part of our family. We spent many adventures and holidays together. He showed me culture, shared good financial tips, and he always had good taste. I will remember many good times that we had together with my Uncle Bob and Bob G. when we visited in Fairfax. You will be missed.
