I met Bob a few times as he was my best friends father in law. He was always friendly and kind, like his son Brent -whom I’ve known for a million years. He was a good man and although I didn’t know him that well, I remember his kindness and his sense of humor! May God take him and may he find peace and know he had a family who loved him very much.
