Bob was a close friend while we were at Thermocopy and after. He was always the same good person. I will always remember the good times when we were in the car going to the next call or enjoying being together along with Anna in New Orleans.

I can’t begin to say how much Bob meant to me. He definitely was one special friend who I already miss lots. I’m thankful to know one day Bob and I will talk again. Rest high on that mountain my sweet friend I love you Bob and Anna

I met Terry Love 3 1/2 years ago. We have talked so many times about Terry and Sharon’s years growing up. Funny stuff, getting caught in not so good choices, milestones, etc. Every conversation surrounded their wonderful parents. Bob Elliott seems to be one of the best daddys ever. I only wish I could of known him as so many others did. I thank the Lord for the legacy that he has left on this earth.

Our memories came from Ben as he shared his stories of his Grandfather. We have been blessed with Ben as he married Sarah and has shared his family stories. We will pray for our extended family to be at peace . And dwell on the good times you had with Mr. Bob.

I remember Bob from the first day at Thermocopy. That smile and kind words have always stayed with me. Loved sharing my canned goods with him and Anna and sitting in the bay window talking about old times and keeping Bob informed on all the people we knew and worked with. From day one Bob always had my back. Even as he grew weaker he continued to ask about how I was doing. Go rest, Bob, and I will see you again one day♥️
