So sorry for your loss! He was a very nice and happy person. We would talk while he waited at Brenda Kitchen’s hair salon for his wife! He was a special person and my thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family!

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 will bring comfort.

Mr. Emery will be greatly missed! I will always remember the big hugs he gave and how much he cared about us Weaver girls, as well as for many others! Him and my dad were two peas in a pod during school basketball games, who both liked to give the refs a hard way to go sometimes 😉! Hugs and love to you Mrs. Emery, Barb, Pam and the rest of the family!

Bob was a wonderful neighbor. Our driveway was always cleared and our sidewalks shoveled before the snow would even stop. Once when the whole area was flooding and we were not at home, Bob was at our house trying to take care of it rather than at his house which was also in danger of flooding. He was a funny, funny man and had a great way of telling simple life stories that came out like comedy routines. Our times with him were always spent laughing. My oldest two kids who knew him well adored him, and in fact, Kari declared him the most handsome man in the world (he reminded us of that a lot... LOL). I don't ever recall seeing him angry. He pretty much handled everything in life with his pretend-gruffness all the while having a big , sweet heart toward everyone. I am sure Ralph was very happy to see him arrive in heaven (he always made Ralph laugh), but my heart is very, very sad today. He was a good man.

We have fond memories of Bob driving his grandchildren home from Etna Elementary daily. A group of us would gather daily to gather our kids. He never failed to say hello and warmly carry on a conversation. I called him the "Cadillac Granddad"! So sorry for your loss. Prayers and peace to you from the Miller family.

Bob was truly one of the best neighbors you could ask for.

I had the privilege and honor of calling Bob my neighbor for 7 years. When I first moved in, I wondered what the strange noise was outside. When I looked out, it was Bob, plowing my drive. Every winter and fall, for 7 years, without fail, Bob would mow up my leaves and push away the snow.

Bob always seemed interested in my life and how things were with my job. He would harass me about teaching/coaching in Granville, but I knew he truly was interested in how things were with my life.

I always looked up to Bob as the guy I want to be like when I retire. He had a huge heart and cared more about others than himself.

Bob, you will truly be missed!
