Mr Bear was the nicest man...had the biggest heart..I remember when we found duchess. He stopped at our house for something can't remember, I asked him if he knew anyone would want a sweet dog. He took one look at her and feel in love...he took her home on a trail basis and that where she stayed until his health made it hard for him to care for her. They give each other some comfort and joy for awhile...we will miss seeing him in the neighborhood he was always optimistic even when he was at his worst... Rest in heaven Mr. BEAR

A good man with a heart as big as the ocean. Loved family and he will be missed. Now walking the streets of gold with all our loved ones who have gone before! Prayers of healing to the family and prayers of celebration for his homecoming with no more pain in God’s kingdom!

Bear had worked at the same office I did and he would always come in with a smile, share God's love with everyone and say a prayer. When he was unable to work any longer, he would call and have me put him on speaker phone to give a word of encouragement and pray for everyone. He enjoyed life and ministering to people. He was a great friend to Allen and I and we will surely miss him. I would also like to extend my love and condolences to Lori. We love you and pray for you in this difficult time.

Bear was such an Awesome man of God. I was able to witness the transformation of such a greatness in his spiritual growth through his witness and many testimonies at the Crossroads. He was always one to share and give his time and talents like manning the grill at the Rescue Ranch for our fundraising and the Crossroads church. He is at peace and no longer suffering the ravages of his earthly body for we can all be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Blessed to call him my brother and friend.

I didn't know Bobby very well, but I will never forget how he made a beautiful plaque to honor my dad and brought it to us at the wake/funeral. He also lead a prayer for him with us. I thought that was so very thoughtful. He was obviously a very kind man who knew and loved the Lord deeply. I pray for the repose of his soul, and for all of his family and loved ones. Our deepest condolences.
