Always enjoyed being part of the family gathering when your father was there as he indeed was a very pleasant and friendly person to be around and talk to. Prayers to the family and always hold tight to the good memories. He will always and forever be with you in spirit.

Uncle Bob was always a quite man. Of course aunt Millie filled each quiet moment with her wit and easy going nature .I loved going to visit them when I was young I'd go stay almost a week at a time and share Robbins room upstairs. What wonderful memories forever stored in my heart. I would stop by when in the neighborhood and stay for hours to just visit. Love you uncle Bob.
