Debi, Jon, Mike, Patty, Aunt Lee, entire family and friends so sorry for your loss. I considered Mr Mead my 2nd father.
I spent more time at the house on the river than i did at my own as a teen. Too many memories to list, thank you for including in your family, especially the boat trip to Upper Canada Village for a weekend. He was a dearly loved and special man. He will be missed by all.

Debbie, Michael and all of your family,
I have such fond memories of your parents and mine at Terrace Park, Whiskey Flats, and other old haunts around the area. Your dad's laughter still rings in my ears. His heart was so very big and his sense of humor so very strong. I always ask my sister, Suzi, how he's doing and what she's heard. I was so sad to hear her words today when we talked. I know he will live on in your hearts, stories and memories.

To Bob’s family,
We will miss Bob at church, sitting behind us, and telling us stories of his hunting trips, family, or telling a good joke. He was always at our church dinners and he was always asking what he could donate for our fund raisers. His gift of the devotionals through the years have meant so much to several of our members. Bob was always friendly and out going. We’d see him in the stores and he’d stop and visit with us, reminding us he’d see us on Sunday. Until we meet again, Rest In Peace, Bob.
Love and prayers,
Scott and Laura LaBarge

I was very saddened to hear of Bob's passing. I work at the Lobster House in Norwood. Bob used to drive over fron the burg to see me a couple times a month. He was just a very nice man. He always requested me to wait on him. He loved our clam chowder and fried haddock. We had alot of nice conversations. He really loved his wife and still missed her every day. I wondered how he was doing, since I hadn't seen him in over a year. My sincere condolences to his family.

No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that Bob is now resting in the arms of our Lord. Our deepest condolences to you and your family.
Bob was one of a kind and will be missed by all who knew him.
