I was blessed to meet Bob about 10 years ago he was my neighbor he would often drive by and stop and ask me for a smile and he always had a story for us. You will be missed but not forgotten Bob.

Bob was a mainstay for so many years at our church. He had an opinion about everything, and was not afraid to share it - lol. That added to his charm. We serve a merciful and loving God, and Bob and God's relationship was special. I miss his loving face and smile, and I am glad he is at peace.

I pray blessings of peace and comfort for you Jamie and the rest of the family.
In His love~

I feel like I have known Bob all my life. Met him so many years ago and was still in touch with him as of nine months ago. Every time we talked he would bring things up from our past that would always make us laugh. He was one of a kind and he will be missed. My prayers are with his family. R.I.P. Bob. Till we meet again.

J. Robert Melchor. I’d known J. Robert since the fourth grade. We both moved across town and attended Bullard High School in Fresno. He was a quick wit and tremendous presence of energy and charm. I would hope he would agree and not mind my sharing. J. Robert is what I called him, maybe a name from a teacher, I don’t know. It suited him. May his family find solace in knowing he is at peace and will not be forgotten by me. RIP J. Robert. 🌹
