I’m so sorry to hear of Bob’s death: down to earth, practical, kind-hearted, a great laugh! May our Lord comfort and keep his mom, wife and the rest of the family. Godspeed, Bob!

I remember our first family vacation last year. My brothers, myself, and pops were going to a Pittsburgh bar and restaurant in Myrtle Beach. He absolutely insisted on renting a limo. We played air guitar and jammed out to classic rock all night. One of the best nights of my life with my dad. RIP Pops. Love ya.
