Bob is my big brother, absolutely the best! He was always there for me throughout my life. He was such a good man,
good husband, good father, good brother, good friend. Needless to say, I will ALWAYS miss him.

Until I see you again Bob......RIP.

My dad was my life. He showed me how to treat people and how to be a good father. He was a gentle man set in his ways, but would help anyone in need. He loved all sports, was a avid bowler right up to his passing. My dad loved having family together and watch sports or set around and tell stories. He loved to travel and has been to several countries in Europe. He once went on a cruise with me and my wife to Tahiti and Bora Bora and we convinced him to do a helmet dive which he absolutely loved. I will miss him with all my heart, but I am blessed to know that he knew how much of a impact he made in my life and how much he was loved by us all. RIP DAD

Bob was hard to beat. He was the best neighbor anyone could hope to ever have. I will miss seeing him out and about or waving to him as he sat on the porch in the summer afternoons. I'm terribly sorry for his family's loss.

I remember the first time he met me and I could tell what a nice man he was. My fondest memory was our cruise trip to Tahiti, and he finally agreed to join in on the helmet dive....first down, last up. He loved that experience and he admitted it.
