Our family feels fortunate to have had the honor of knowing such a kind, caring man of faith. He and his wife were neighbors of our dads and we got to visit on a regular basis and attend events at Crestview. God sent him to us to bring cheer and flowers and apple pie of course. He never had a bad word to say and he was a pleasure to be around. I know his family will miss him dearly, but he is whole and without pain and sitting with God very happy for eternity, until we meet again. God Bless You all Al Apel, Julie Hicks and family and Greg Apel

Bob was a fine leader and good friend to college students throughout Illinois. His ministry contributed to the spiritual development of hundreds of young men and women, many of whom now serve in leadership positions in churches and the mission field world wide.. Fond memories of student conferences and ping pong tournaments. I'm better for having known him.
