So sorry to hear of the passing of Bob. Want to extend our sympathy to family, friends and coworkers.
He certainly will be missed. He has been delivering supplies to us for years, always with a smile and good conversation.
Many prayers to all that had the pleasure of knowing him.

Anna and I employed Bob for the last 4 of the years that Mike mentioned. He was always the source of a smile in the early AM, his customers loved him, he was uber reliable, and he always liked to remind me that we shared a birthday. There will be a big hole in that birthday this year Bob. We'll miss you dearly.

I worked with Bob for 34 years and employed him for 30 of them. He started at Office Express almost right after high school and he became a fixture working with us. He was always very dependable and our customers loved him.

Bob was passionate about his collectables. If you are reading this, he probably showed off many of them to you. He had some great stuff that always brought back memories. I will always remember Bob and will miss his kind smile and joking ways.

He will be missed by me as well as many others in the Office Express family.

God bless you Bob!

Bob and I graduated from Fraser. I had him in a class or two. We didn't hang out much, but I would see him once in a while. We had some of the same interests including comic art and going to comic cons. Whenever I would bump into him, he would show me the newest, great thing he had picked up. I saw him a little more often when he started delivering office supplies to the business next door. He was always upbeat and smiling. I will miss Bob.

Bob was such a kind-hearted person. He always made coming into work so welcoming. He welcomed my husband with open arms at each gathering. I appreciated talking with him about comics daily it made my morning. Thank you, Bob, for being a great person to know in my life.

Prayers to his family and friends.

Sincerely,

Kayla Meade

The first time I met Bob, or Robbie (The Squack is Back), was playing basketball in 7th grade 39 years ago. He didn’t want to lose like myself and we hit it off! I can’t really remember a bad memory of him and this is hard to say goodbye! He was close to my mom and still stopped by every couple weeks to talk to her and might of talked to her more than I did! Life is short cherish the moment you have with your loved ones before they are gone.

Robert (Scoby) was a great friend that I have been in touch with since 10th Grade Fraser High School. It was Mr. Fifers metal shop class where it all started for us. Good old Mr. Fifers class "LADYIES GET TO WORK". That was our favorite class and we always spoke of those times in high school. All the theme parks (Christopher and Chris in pic), camping, concerts, bomb fires during high school in the woods off Garfield with Steve, Pam, Tracey, Rob and “Yeh Boy” Christopher. Can’t forget all the cruising Gratiot on the weekend chasing skirt in that Monte Carlo. Not to mention chasing the same girl at one time.
Will never forget taking 1st place in bowling as the mighty BULLDOGS with you and Mark at Rosebowl. Left Wing (Rob with your left hook) and Right Wing (me with my right hook) took home the trophy and bragging rights for the year.
One common thread we had was the thrill of flipping an item for a buck. All the toy shows we went together. “BUY LOW SELL HIGH” was always our challenge and you had that down better than anybody with your cards, comics and figurines. I’ll miss you more than you’ll know.
Love you Bro
