Jim and I spent happy times with Uncle Bob & Aunt Bettie.
A few of those times spent on Bobbie's boat on the Ohio River skiing.
He was a good Christian and family meant everything to him.
As the family is celebrating a life well lived, I pray for ya'll & I know, as time passes and the pain of grief lessens, your hearts will fill with wonderful memories of joyful times together.

At any age it is hard to lose the comfort and companionship of a father and grandfather my heart aches for your loss.
