I hope this picture finds Bob's family. It maybe the very last one before he passed. This photo was taken April 28th, 2018, the day before Scott and I got married. It was taken by our photographer, who after talking to Bob for a little while, learned how much he cared about us as his neighbors and wanted to get a picture.
After Bob passed away, I realized that since we lived in TN for 2 years, we never had a picture with him. So I was so happy to see this when we finally got the wedding photos back. I wanted to give this photo to the family, but I dont have any way of contacting them and had no luck searching on Facebook. If anyone sees this, please inform the family that it is here. Thank you. I think of you often Bob. Thanks for being a true friend.
Love Scott and Michaela Shelton

When I started out in the Dayton, NG unit in the mid 70s. One of the first NCO that I got acquainted with was Bob who I have always considered to be a friend. I left the unit and went on to OCS and graduated and when I returned to the unit, the first NCO to recognize my 2Lt bars was none other than Bob. He quickly rendered a salute
He was the first. I then approached Bob and as a time honored tradition, I
Presented Bob with a Silver Dollar and explained the tradition. Bob was sincerely touched by its history. The last time that I talked with Bob he told me that he still had the Silver Dollar and would never forget where it came from and the traditional values behind it.
Bob was a professional solider and true patriot and above all a real friend. Bob truly cared about each and every one of us. I and sorry to hear of Bob's passing. My thoughts and prayers are now with the family. Rest in Peace Bob.
Your friend
Archie Etherton Sr.

I worked with Bob at Sequoyah Nuclear ⚛ plant what a guy one of the most unselfish individuals I've had the pleasure of working with. He never bragged or boasted about his military life I didn't even know he was a Sargeant. Hate to see you go Bob rest in peace.
