As a teen I remember spending weeks in the summer with grandpa and going to work with him and “working” in the shop at the airline . I was blessed to be part of his life and spending those precious moments in the house of “dill”. Canning was his thing then and that particular smell takes me back. May you Rest In Peace. Love your granddaughter Christine (Chris)

We were very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. We have wonderful
memories of Bingo that he was a big part of. We will not be able
to make the funeral because of all that is going on, but you will
be in our prayers.
