I often reached out to Bob when my laptop was not working as I needed it to, right before a big quote or meeting. Always last minute and with a sense of urgency and Bob would save me while being so calm, helpful and so very nice. His sense of humor and sense of decency made a difference and as I transitioned over to the company, he made me feel welcome and supported.

I am sure God has a special place in heaven for Bob Allan Hanratty.

My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May God give you the peace that you seek. May our condolences bring you comfort.

Bob was my little brother. The world will be a darker place without him. Bob always filled the room with laughter and cheer. His sudden death will leave a hole in my heart. Bob and I were like two peas in a pod growing up in Mounds View and Andover. I couldn’t ask for a better brother and friend. I will pass along his legacy and try to be a better person, like he was. I love you Bob.

We knew Bob for many years and watched him grow into an amazing kind, funny, gentle man. Bob fished with us, our son often swam in Bob’s pool, and Bob just hung out a lot at our home. He was always welcome here; he was polite and a good friend to our son.

We are so very sorry Bob died. He left this world way too soon, and he will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Bob will be truly missed and I’m really sorry for this lost. He was a extremely shy guy but I’m glad to say he was comfortable enough to open up to me. He was more than a co-worker, he was a friend and I will miss him extremely.
