ADD A MEMORY

One memory I have is when I was a very young teenager Bobby and Patty took me to the drive-in and let me sit in the front seat with them. I appreciated Bobby treating me like a friend and not just a bratty kid. As I became a young adult Bobby and I became good friends. We would have great conversations, watched late-night TV together or just listen to music. I valued Bobby's opinions and I trusted his guidance. He and I had some good times together like the time we tried to feed the fish crackers, the time we went to the all-night grocery store and opened a bag of cookies and ate them while we were shopping. Bobby and I shared many stories and laughed between us. The one story we always laughed about was a semi-private joke we shared about the song "I wear my sunglasses at night" we laughed about that for years. Bobby was such a good friend and I'm glad he joined our family. He surely will be missed. Rest in peace .

Well The first memory that I have of Bob is when he came to our house to pick up my sister Patty for a date . I had just finished eating a Limburger cheese and onion sandwich when I opened up the door , I said hellooooo I am sure he smelled that good aroma of that sandwich on my breath and it about knocked him off his feet we laughed about that so many times in the past . And another memory is when one night Bob and I and all of us was having a little get together and I think Bob and I had a little bit too much to drink and we thought we were doing meatloaf a favor by singing by the dashboard lights we thought we was doing really good with our brooms as Guitars and singing as loud as we
could , I guess we thought we could really sing that was another great time, Then there was a family vacation we all took a cruise to Belize Honduras and had a great time .
Bob if You are reading this from heaven please know that I have always loved you and I was blessed to have you as a brother in law I will always cherish the memories we’ve had together .

I remember Robert sending drawings of him as Beetle Bailey with the Sargent chewing him out. I loved his army letters.
I remember we might not have been doing anything special, but just being with you made it great.
I love you Robert, and will always miss your humor.

Uncle Bobby,
I will miss you and your ability to laugh at memories from your childhood. Between you, mom, and Uncle Richard life was never boring. Family parties won’t be the same without you.
Love
Your niece Glo

Random memories of Robert my big brother:
Running screaming and terrified outside around the house as he
chased us in the dark pretending to be Frankenstein.
The gold watch pendant necklace he brought me when discharged
from the Army.
Sitting around family gatherings with my other brother Richard,
trying to out do each other with stories of how poor we were
when we grew up.
I'll miss you big brother,
Love, Muffin
