BJ and Family - Amberleen and I are so very sorry for your tragic loss of Bob. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to you and the family. It is sad to lose someone so early.
While we had not been in contact for some time, I had ironically brought up Bob in conversation recently. The folks knew Bob as we had shared and appreciated his skills and help during our early days in Winding River. He was always super with everything he did. The memories he has now left us with were all good.
Bob and I did play golf together - one time, a long while ago - we did bet and I took a dollar from him. I saved that dollar to pay for my bet the next time we played. Unfortunately, it just didn't happen. I still have that dollar with his name on it - wish I had dated it.
BJ, we do send our warmest hugs and hope the good memories will keep your heart warm.
Dave and Amberleen Britton

I only knew Bob through B.J. who I have known a number of years. He seemed a very kind soul, I only saw him a few times but realized how devoted he was to his family and I am sure he will be very missed. My heart goes out to the family.
He was too young to leave this life, prayers for the family.

So sad to hear about my great childhood friend. Big #72 at Ware High School will missed but in my memories forever.

Bob and I got a after school job in Jr. High, cleaning chicken coops for a dollar an hour. While cleaning one day, I was chasing a mouse. Bob was on all 4's facing away from me. The mouse ran between Bob's legs and when I went in front to continue the chase, the mouse didn't come out. I told Bob I think a mouse just ran up your pant leg. He said I was crazy, then all of a sudden there was a loud yell and he went from all 4's to a 30" vertical leap in a split second. The mouse made it up to his thigh and was continuing north! The dance he was doing makes me laugh to this day.

God bless you Bob, you and your family are in our prayers.

BJ I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was such a gentle giant of a man always having a kind word for me as he would pass by my office! I will always remember him as Big Bob and what a good husband he was to you! My you find comfort in the many wonderful memories I know you have of him. God bless you and your family during this most difficult time.

Bob and I were classmates. He played pee wee football with my brothers Jim and Mike Quink and was coached by my dad. I am so glad that I had the chance to meet him and his parents. May you find peace in knowing that he filled the lives of many .
