Bob will be missed by those of us who looked forward to his smile and care. A true supporter of family and friends he could be found at swim meets, other school functions, or at booster clubs.

He was a big teddy bear with a quiet manner full of care and concern. Lots of love to family and friends. His loss is felt by many.
