I posted this on Facebook, and although it’s few in words, it very much captures the special connection I had with Grandpa Bob:

“He couldn’t tell me enough how proud he was of me and I’m thankful, despite the thousands of miles apart, that we’ve been able to enjoy a small handful of quality visits together in recent years. I love you Grandpa Bob. Rest well.”

There are no words to express how deeply saddened I am to have lost someone so important to me. My grandpa was one of the best people I have ever met. I’ll forever remember how he never missed an opportunity to tell me how proud I’ve made him or how I’ve grown into such a beautiful young woman. There was never a dull moment with him. My favorite memory with him is back in grade school I spent some time with him during summer break. And we went to the movie theater, he was so insistent that we sneak into more movies. I was so scared we’d get caught but he didn’t care. We spent all day at the theater and only paid for one!! This memory will be cherished always. Grandpa you are so incredibly loved and you’ll be forever missed. Knowing you’ve made it home gives great peace of mind. Until we meet again XX

Bob was always kind to me. Whenever he saw me, he came over and made me feel welcome. There was always room at Bob’s table for me. Thank you, Bob, for thinking of others. I will miss you and your never-give-up attitude. When I doubt myself, I will remember that you just went ahead and did it!

I met Bob in person at the end of 2012: Corinne had introduced us over the phone earlier that year. One of his first of many questions to me, was did I love his “Corky”? With out hesitation I said “ Yes sir I do”. It would be the beginning of what would become sessions, in which he would pose thought provoking questions from political points of view to vacationing locations: I chuckle as i reminisce about our conversations (if you can call them that). Shortly after meeting Bob, he lost his hearing completely and even with his hearing aid could not quite understand what I was saying. It could have been the specific tone of my voice or that in trying to provide him a thorough thought out response he was already moving on to another idea (his mind was always moving a hundred miles a minute). Perhaps a combination of all these? I’ll never know. In my minds eye, I can still picture him looking off to one side with his quirky smile licking his lips and posing another question. Frustrating as it was at times, as I am sure much more for him, we both still endeavored to have them. I’m going to miss you Bob.

Ever since I met Bob through my bff Cristina, I knew that he’s a jolly good fellow, there was never a dull moment whenever we were together. He has lots of funny stories and jokes to share. He is such a nice guy, kind and very accommodating. We will surely miss him. For you my bff Cristina, may your heart and soul find peace and comfort for Bob didn’t really leave us because he will stay alive in our hearts and mind. I love you guys.

Bob was my Best Friend and I thought of him as my Brother. I knew Bob for 35 years. Both of us were USAF Retirees, Bob 26 years and myself 24 years. We were stationed at several places together and it seemed fate was on our side. Everywhere he went or visa versa we ended up at the same place. We started at Dyess AFB, Texas and ended up at Las Vegas, Nevada with a trip to South Korea in between. It was truly a friendship for the ages. I was there when he met his beautiful wife Cristina and he was there in Korea when I met my beautiful wife. He was the happiest man on earth after marrying her. His love for his kids and family was truly amazing. I felt I was a part of his family and they always made me feel like I was special. We were both Leo's with our birthdays only 3 days apart. The old saying that someone would give you the shirt off his back, Bob was truly that guy. We went thru so many things together and I leaned on him many times to get me through some tough times. 5 AM or 12 Midnight he was always there to listen. His laughter and smile were very infectious and he was someone who could always make you laugh even if you didn't feel like it. To me he was truly an amazing person and he will truly be missed by everyone that knew him. I know he is in heaven right now probably talking politics or sports, but I can smile and be happy today knowing that one day I will join him in Heaven and we can continue this Friendship thru eternity. Bob, my Brother and Friend. I love you and you will be missed until we meet again, and we will.
