Gloria and Family,

I am sorry for the loss of your dad, husband and grandfather. I was out of town and unable to attend the funeral but Betty attended.

The one thing that I always remember about Bob was his positive attitude. He usually stood outside his office and greeted me in the morning with a smile and asked, "How is Mike this morning"?

He was a true team player and could be counted on always. His loyalty to our company and family was tremendous. He was a gentle soul.
