Growing up I knew Bobby very well and have numerous memories as we hung out with our friends often in Spring Arbor. It's so hard to share just one. You will be missed my friend.

I didn't know Bob very well. The few times I did see him I remember he was always finding ways to entertain the children . Bob was a kid at heart. I think that's what kept him young. I believe God needed him to entertain the youngsters in heaven. He is in God's hands, no longer in any pain, and entertaining the children until his family joins him. Rest in peace Bob.
