Bobby was a great friend to my father, Russell Page. We always enjoyed when he came over for dinner at Christmas. He had a wonderful spirit. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Uncle Bobby,
It was an honor that you asked us to go on this journey with you in your battle with cancer. We enjoyed our talks and conversations as we went to the many doctor appointments and procedures. Your final weeks here in our home brought us even closer as a family. You became more like a brother than an Uncle. We will always cherish the time we had. I'm sorry we didn't get to go fishing one last time but we know you are fishing with Dad and Grandpa in heaven. We will never forget our early mornings having coffee with you while waiting for the sun to rise.

All our love,

John Michael & Paula
