May he Rest In Peace! My fondest memories of uncle Bob was when he and aunt Nancy would bring the family down to Pensacola Beach for a summer vacation. We had so much fun playing games, goofy golf and rides! So glad we were able to talk to him back in a December when my mother passed. He would call my my mom(his sister) on a regular basis and she would tell me he always asked about me and how I was doing with my eye disease. We love you and you will be dearly missed. Pammie

May God rest his sole! My fondest memories of uncle Bob were when he and my cousins would come down and visit with us in the summer. He loved to drive fast and that always put a smile on my face as a young boy! So glad us kids had the opportunity to talk to him this past Dec...we miss you uncle Bob!

Bob was a special friend and like a brother to me. We grew up together as teenagers and I remember a hunting trip to Warrensburg Mo. .Bob was 17 years old and drove his dad’s car. Scared me to death. We brought rabbits and squirrels home with us.
Rest In Peace Bob.❤️🙏
Frances, you and all of the family are in our prayers. Give each other a hug for me.

Loved to hear him play the harmonica! So happy I was able to tell him I love him before he left this world. He is having a grand reunion in heaven!!! Prayers and Love to you all!!!

Bob was a great father. We are good friends with his sons Moose and wife Vicki, as well as with Rick. All of his kids are amazing. He taught them so many great skills and how to be a great person like he was. Our deepest sympathy to his entire family. He will be missed by so many!

One of the things I'll always remember about Bob, is when he went with me to a father daughter Girl Scout dinner. My dad was going to be out of town for work and my mom told me to take my brother! Because I could not do that, I went next door and asked Bobarino if he would like to go with me. Much to my delight, he said YES! I will miss my adopted dad!
