You will be very missed, and you were very loved.
You will be cherished! I loved you dearly.
You were a good hearted man. You had a big heart. I could sit here forever and talk about memories.
You had that dangerous streak about you but it made you unique, but sometimes complecated. But man we had a blast on that dirt track.
Your son is just like you when it comes to the dangerous streak and being complecated and of course stubborn so baby please give me a hand with him.
We love you and we will dearly miss you!
See you when we get home.
Just dance, fly high and have a blast and tell everyone hello!

I was Bob’s pastor when he was in high school. Bob was always an active part of our youth group and I have good memories of times at Falls Creek and youth fellowships.

I’m heartbroken to hear this news. Bob was such a kind soul. I heard many stories over the years from my Dad about their adventures at the race track-they really were great buddies. Love to everyone.
