Uncle Bob was the greatest! He was so full of life and always upbeat. I will always remember him as the fun uncle who lived on a lake and had a boat! Loved going to his house for the 4th of July family gatherings. He taught me how to waterski and love the water.
He was so compassionate and supportive when Mom passed away. I will miss his smile face.
Say Hi to Mom for me Uncle Bob❤️

There are so many wonderful memories with Grandpa Bob. I will always remember sitting in the front yard with him and talking, or watching wrestling on Monday nights, he sure loved his wrestling. He was such a kind and loving person. Grandpa Bob made a positive impact on so many people including myself. He will be truly missed.

There are so many great memories with Angie, Grandpa Bob, Grandma Lorrie, Karen, Carl, Stacy, and friends on Pike Lake. One slightly embarrassing but funny, was a tubing incident. They were whipping me around on the tube when I had a major wipe out. I was totally fine so I got back on the tube to finish the run. Carl was yelling back to me, “you need a new suit!” I didn’t understand, and then it did feel a little drafty. My suit had torn in half! I quickly dropped back in the water and made him tow me in. :) For the rest of the day, I wore a suit from Grandpa Bob from the 70’s I think :) So many funny and good memories there. Love you all.

I remember when he dressed up like Santa and then I got scared. I also remember watching Frosty the snowman with Grandma Lorrie and Grandpa Bob, playing on the old pool table a couple times and always asking to try out his massage chair.

I remember all the times at Christmas Eve Party’s and getting presents and feeling thankful. Also messing around in their basement and playing with the toys, hide and seek , talking through the laundry shoot. Grandpa Bob and Grandma Lorrie taking their time and money spending on us we are thankful for him.

I will always remember the fun 4th of July parties hosted by Bob and Lorrie at their lovely home. Bob was so welcoming and seemed to have a smile on his face all the time. Even when I was little kid, I could see how much he truly loved Lorrie. Their love for each other seemed to shine through them and it was beautiful to see. Bob will be greatly missed.
