Bob was a neat guy. I only got to know him in the last 5-6 years from the neighborhood, but I enjoyed his stories and company. He always liked to share my pizza with me and give my dogs a nice petting. He is now in his heavenly home with the Lord and also his wife Lorraine. Prayers to his family.

I'm so sorry to hear about Bob. I lived behind him for the past few years. A really nice and sharp guy. My dog absolutely LOVED him. When he watered his roses, Basha wanted to be 'watered' too. May God bless and comfort all of you.
