Bob: fuiste una gran persona en todo sentido. Amable, servicial y en lo personal, un gran amigo mío. Tengo recuerdos lindísimos de mis viajes a California y cuando viniste a Costa Rica. Gran cocinero, fan de Los Angeles Lakers, amante de pasear en Disneyland y de la buena comida. Pasamos navidades juntos, muy alegres. Te ganaste el cariño de mucha gente. Misión cumplida en la Tierra mi amigo, te nos adelantaste un poco a los demás. MUCHAS GRACIAS!. Que descanses en paz.

Bob, disfrutaste la vida al máximo, te aferraste a ella con gran fé en Dios. Estoy seguro que ya estás disfrutando de la vida eterna en la casa del Señor. Te vamos a extrañar mucho.

Bob, it was an honor to know a man after God's own heart who have love for everyone. It was an honor to see you at Mass with your wife and your children. Your faith was truly shown not only by your accomplishments but more by the love that you had for your family and brothers and sisters in Christ. Your parents gave you the foundation of Christ and you continue to build upon it for your own family. May you now rest in peace and the perpetual light shine upon you always. Thank you for shining your faith and love of family
upon me. You will be missed but not forgotten

When we moved to the US almost 30 years ago, Bob and Vilma provided the warmth of family in a foreign land. I will always remember holidays with the cousins and Bob in the kitchen making sure everything was perfect. I am fortunate that I got to see Bob a couple of years ago and was blown away by his stoicism and sweetness. He is in our hearts and prayers.

I met Bob in the records section of the Ramey AFB BX in Puerto Rico in 1968. We went to the cafeteria for coffee and a friendship blossomed from there. Bob used to comment how unusual it was for a guy from West Covina and a guy from Seaford, NY to hit it off as well as we did. Bob used to discuss all his friends from high school and his trips to the beach in his Mustang. He actually convinced me to try Mexican food if I ever got to California when I left Puerto Rico. As it tuned out I was next stationed at March AFB and Bob got assigned there when he left P.R. So basically we spent the entire 4 years in the Air Force together.
It was a marvelous time and I will never forget his laughter and his joy of life. I will miss him tremendously but I know I will see him again when my turn comes to cross over. Rest in Peace buddy!

It has been a blessing to have known Bob and Vilma. We know Bob's mom Betty from our church, where we have sat next to her for many years. We met Bob and Vilma through their great love and devotion to the Divine Mercy. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. May Our Lord Jesus continue to hold you and your family in His Hands and may His Divine Mercy give you comfort.

I met Bob in 1961 at Coronado Jr. High. For the next 7 years we were always together. He was my classmate, my teammate, my band mate and my best friend. I love you Bob and I will forever miss you. See you on the other side. Randy Selby
