I have very fond memories going over to Uncle Bob & Aunt Elva's house to go to the Mardi Gras parades when they were on Metairie Road back in the 60's & 70's. I also remember going to the Roth family picnics every spring at Metairie playground; Uncle Bob was so kind to all of us. Uncle Bob, may you rest in peace. I know that you are in a much better place now.

I will always remember Bob as the friendly, energetic insurance man who would come to our home to discuss MetLife insurance policies with my parents. He always had a smile on his face and such a warm personality! God bless you, Bob! You will be deeply missed!
