Bob was a personal friend, as well as, a past client of mine. He always had the best stories and a great wit. He was always more than willing to share his insights and his opinions about matters (even when unprovoked 😉 )

He was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing him and he will be greatly missed.

Prayers 🙏 of comfort and peace to his friends and family.

I will always treasure the good times Bob and Willadean shared with my mom and dad and me. There were great card games, meals, and just visiting that were filled with good fun and lots of laughs. Big guy, enjoy your new home with Willadean and your Heavenly Father. We'll see you again some day.

Living so far away, I never got to spend much time with Uncle Bob, but I always loved his hugs when I did get to see him. I've always described him to people as a big teddy bear. I loved him deeply and will miss him. Love to all of you!

Bob and Willadean gave me much needed support when I lost my son, Craig and daughter-in-law, Sylvia. I am forever grateful that they were there when I needed them most. I was blessed to have them in my life.
