To the Family of Robert Deter,
Losing a loved one in death can be so hard to deal with, but saying a prayer to God can help you cope with your lost.
Did you know that one day we will see our dead loved ones again? The bible promises at Acts 24:15 "There is going to be a resurrection" also John 5: 28,29 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment. Hope this brings comfort to all.

Been a vendor with bobob for many years. He always had a smile and great stories..when i came to my first swap with bob i broke down on the way from mexico pa. I did not have money to get in or to get a room. Bobby left me set up anyway and told me to stay in the building overnite as his watchdog. Ha ha he saved my trip and i had a good show. At the end he would not take my money and told me thats what brothers do. I am sure knowing bobby there are alot of these stories out there....thanks for letting me be a small part of your life and the motorcycle community has lost a great soul . I m sure we will meet again and finally get to go on the ride we always talked about. Will miss u till then BROTHER

I remember my dad Dale, always talking about Bobby and how he was a great friend to him. Bobby was a wonderful man. He was funny, kind, and always made you laugh. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Melody, you, the girls, and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. You and Bobby were always good to my dad and mom. You have a Guardian Angel watching over you.

Love - Julie
