I knew Bob for many years from St Bede's. He was a wonderful man and so generous to St Bede's. He will be greatly missed.

Bob's name brings on a smile, his generosity inspires, and his kind and loving heart goes beyond measure. We will truly miss our PL golf partner. His great drives and amazing putting carried our team. His stories of childhood, family, and adventures will remain cherished memories. We are so grateful for all the years of his friendship.

Bobby,

As I reflect on our memories, I smile remembering what a great friend of my dad’s you were. Such good friends that you embraced our whole family! I always looked forward to heading to Arena each weekend and making our weekly stops at your shop to chat, watch you work, or see what you’ve made! You made countless gifts for friends, and we could always count on you. I take comfort in the great reunion you and dad must be having in heaven now. We love you and will miss you dearly!

I'll miss you Bob,

Playing golf with you was always a real pleasure, but it didn't happen as often as I would have liked. You were always so easy to be around. A gentleman, a religious man, a healthy man, a thoughtful man, and one heck of a competitive golfer. I hope our paths will cross again at that perfect golf course in the afterlife.
If it's OK, I'd ask you to be patient for my arrival, I still have some butt to kick in your honor. God Bless You Bob!!!

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Micetic family on the passing of Bob. He was a very kind man who always made time to talk to you. Over the past 20 years, we got to know Bob on the golf course with the Goodfellas and the Disney trips. I think that Bob and I were teamed up more than any two golfers, Chuck used to say to us we never complained about who we played with, but we did ask him why the two of us were together so many times, I don't believe he ever answered us. Disney was no different, except my wife seemed to get paired up with him a few times during the week. We both had good times golfing together as my wife says he was always patient with me and seemed to enjoy the times they played together. We will miss you, Bob, enjoy the plush golf courses in heaven, a T-time is waiting for you.

Our Deepest Sympathies to the Micetic Family on your loss. Bob will be remembered as kind person who could find time for the smallest request, We would meet at the USBC for the last 48 years with a casual "Hi" or a long conversation about a variety of subjects.
He will be missed by the many people whose lives he touched.

Bob was a dear family friend and business partner with my dad, Leif, Sr.. I grew up on the same street as the Micetic family. Bob was like a wise uncle to me and my brother, Ed. His shared wisdom and warm caring personality helped shaped us into the men we are today. May he be eternally blessed for he is dearly missed.
