Although Bob and Gail were of no blood relation to me, they will always be my Nina and Pappa. I was the little neighbor girl and played with Courtney every moment of each weekend. He would help settle our fights, watch us swim, walk me home when it was too dark to see, even though it was only next door. Pappa loved me and my family like his own. I am forever grateful for his friendship to my parents, the many hours he and my dad would spend in the yard talking, and the life lessons he taught Courtney and I. Thank you for sharing him with my family and I.

God continue to bless you with His peace and comfort in knowing Pappa is awaiting you in eternity. Love you all❤️❤️❤️

I will truly miss my neighbor and friend affectionately known To me as “Deputy Dawg”....as my sweet friend Jill introduced him to me. And that he was! The absence of his generous spirit, sweet nature and cantankerous style will leave a void in my little neighborhood. I pray you all are surrounded by many precious memories to comfort you in the days ahead.
Onward and upward...Godspeed Deputy Dawg.

I have always thought Bob’s service to our country as a Secret Service Agent was selfless and honorable. When I would go to the Kingwood CC to play tennis I knew he would be there working out. I’d grab all my girl friends and take them in to meet this remarkable man. I loved that they thought he was the MAN!!!! Rest warrior, husband, father, grand and great. You will be missed.
