Bob was on the committee that called me(Stan) as minister of music at GLBC in 1983. He was a staunch supporter of my ministry during the 9 years we were at the church. He and Pauline were wonderful friends as well as around the corner neighbors, and kept a well stocked frig with yoo-hoo chocolate drinks for the neighborhood kids. We’re grateful for the ministry of Bob and Pauline and for their winsome Christian witness through the years.

Robert was such a nice guy. I worked with Pauline at Woodlawn School, many years ago. I always enjoyed their fellowship when we would have Woodlawn get-togethers.
