I had the pleasure of meeting Bob when I worked at Frontier. What a bright light in a gloomy place, he was! Always happy, smiling, and although it took him a few weeks, ALWAYS remembered my name. I left frontier and started working at the Lassus gas station on N Anthony, and wouldn’t you know that is where Bob came to play his scratch offs!!! We would talk, joke, and laugh until I had to get busy again. Bob was so proud of his children. He spoke of them often, their accomplishments, and what they were up to. He would also give me sound advice as to teenager handling at my own house. I’m truly saddened to hear that he passed away, but what a life well lived. You’ll be truly missed, Bob, and I hope to see you someday when I go to get my slice of pie in the sky ❤️

I would sing"BOB THE VENDOR YES YOU ARE" when I seen him in the break room of Frontier and he would say Hi Gail with that devious smile he always had! One day I was visiting the McDonalds across from Glenbrook Mall and found him at work there! Bob introduced me to his work crew and I could see the respect and admiration that shown towards him. The stories Bob shared you can tell he had a very fulfilling life with family and friends. REST IN HEAVEN MY FRIEND..

I first met Bob in 2004. I had only lived in his upstairs apartment for a week when he offered to drop my daughter and me off in Fort Myers, FL on his way to a wedding on Sanibel Island. On this trip, we hit a deer at exit 41 and totaled the rental car (which only had 4 miles on it when we got into it). Bob hugged the center lane the entire trip, so much so that I wrote in my scrapbook "I have no idea how this guy travels so much, drives this badly, and has lived this long!" haha! We witnessed an 18 wheeler, going full speed, barely miss a car waiting in backed up traffic. We stopped in Makin, GA and had, what we both agreed were, THE best Wendy's doubles we had ever had. I was his personal secretary during the trip, writing down June Hogs here and August Corn there. And when we got back to Fort Wayne, we had formed a pretty awesome friendship. That trip to Florida was my first time meeting my dad. I had no money and no means by which to make the trip. But Bob made that moment happen for me and my family after only knowing me for a week. What that meant to me and my family is beyond explanation and I will forever be in his debt. He will be missed.

Bob was just one of a kind. He amazed me how he knew everyone by name. He always had stories to share and talked so highly about his family. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Bob was a friend of mine as a child and later as a senior citizen, thanks to Patricia bringing us all together in Phoenix for several years. After that, Bob and I talked about once a month on the phone, mostly about politics. However, there were also segues to his children or grandchildren that he loved to talk about, along with his love for his sister.

My world is smaller without him.

Bob was a joy to all. Telling his stories and always talked about his family (grandchildren and his sister). I believe he enjoyed his job filling the vending machines so he could see and talk to all of us. We all missed him when he was off sick. Everyone always asked where was Bob. It was not the same when Bob was not walking the halls. He is one man you could always count on to be there to lift your day when you are down and he might not even none it.
He loved it when we would invite him to join us in our carry-ins. He was a delight. Bob you will be missed by all at Frontier.

O Bob, sweet Bob. I made sure to hit the breakroom by noon because I knew he'd be there , and he would want to chat. He couldn't get my name right, called me Michelle for the longest time. I never corrected him 🤣. One day he heard someone say my name , and lectured me for not telling him. He was so sweet. Always talking about his family , showing pictures. He really loved his kids and grandkids. His whole face would usually light up talking about them. They were his whole world. The breakroom won't ever be the same. Bob, maybe I'll finally fix that bracelet, I'll miss you ♥️

I echo a lot of people when I say Bob was always friendly and caring face to see. I don't know how, but he always remembered everyone's name and previous conversations. He loved talking about his family and showing pictures. He always encouraged me to travel and go see Yellowstone and the Tetons. It was such a nice break in the day to listen to his stories about all his adventures. He will be missed and our prayers are with the family.

Bob was a very caring and friendly person he would speak to who ever came in the room, if he knew them or not. Bob and I got to know each other very well, on my breaks I would go to the lunch room and he knew what kind of drinks I liked :) He would say Hey Amanda I refilled your favorite drink for ya. He is such an amazing person and he loved his Family he always spoke of his Children and Grandkids may he rest in Haven :) You'll be missed
