Our heart grieves for you Virginia plus all of your love ones; to include family and friends who have had the honor of knowing Bob.

We met you both at the gym and saw first-hand Bob's "can-do"attitude as well as his determination when keeping up his fitness routine at the gym. He never missed a work-out and an example to look-up to.

He will be honored and missed by those who knew him.

We have been blessed nearly ten years with an incredible friendship filled with shared wisdom, knowledge, lots of laughter and wonderful memories. Nothing will ever come between those memories that are simply meant to last a lifetime and beyond.

Many, Many wonderful memories of a really great guy and cousin. Way back when, as a high school kid writing to Bob in Korea at least once a week. Later on meeting our families at Kent Lake on Sundays in the summer. A few summers at "the" cottages. And a lot more. Memories of Bob will always be special. With love, geri (wojcik/Shelly.cousin)

One of my more recent memories of Uncle Bob is when him, Aunt Virge, Michele, Kelsey, Nick and Chris went to Walt Disney World and we drove up to meet everyone. He greeted me with a shot of Crown. The next day he pulls my husband aside to make sure he was suitable for me. After finding out we were very similar to him and Aunt Virge (socially and financially) he gave his approval. One of many good memories. RIP Uncle Bob
