I will always cherish the memories of growing up with Uncle Bob. The play room, home made ice cream, sitting in his cool cars, and the great stories. I am blessed to be a part of this family. I find comfort knowing he is in a more peaceful and loving place, relaxing with Aunt Patsy and fishing with grandpa. We will miss him dearly and remember him always. ❤

What a great picture of your dad with his dog! It reminds me so much of grandpa Louie Jensen. The family resemblance runs deep!
What a remarkable life and legacy Robert leaves in each of you!
Sending our love and hugs from Medford OR❤️
