Sandy and I enjoyed numerous cruises with Bob and Marilyn, and lunches afterward to relive our experiences. Bob was a good man, someone who was fun to travel with, easy to talk to, and always enjoyable to be around. We have lots of good memories of time spent together. Blessing to Marilyn and family.

Dear Marilyn, Steve and Dawn,

Our deepest condolences on your loss of Bob. We know you were always so close. As an older brother, Bob was a significant presence in my life. In child and teen years he was a mentor, leader and friend. In our careers, he exemplified integrity and success. In 23 years of retirement, he kept a busy schedule serving family and others. (And he was always the better golfer!) He was a good and sincere person. We know your hearts are heavy. Sorry distance and COVID prevent us from being together in your time of grief.

Jerry and Stephanie Tinsley
