Bob was my neighbor as I was a child, they lived across the street from our family. He was my dentist for many years as well as a great friend of the family. Many memories of fun times with that man! I can Remember he dressed up as Santa Claus and came over to our house peering in the back windows at Christmas time. He was one of my dad‘s best friends and was always fun to be around. Such a shame to lose a man like Bob. My condolences to all the families involved. He will be missed.

I only knew Bob briefly, but he was so kind to me. His adventurous spirit made me excited to talk with him whenever he was around. Bob made me try oysters for the first time and now I crave them! My heart goes out to Pam and family. ❤️

Becky, Rick, Susie and Pam,
We are so sorry.
There are so many memories...learning how to make potato soup, learning how to floss correctly, learning how to balance in a folding aluminum chair while riding in the back of the VW van and those were all before the age of 14!
Singing every single OSU fight song that ever existed. I never knew that “giving a damn about the whole state of Michigan” would lead to lifelong screaming of OH IO.
Listening intently to his deep muah muah muah voice telling scary stories....all floating around in my head.
He was not to be trusted with secrets of TPing certain houses, but he made up for that by being the fun dad teaching us the shag.
Then the eight hour driving trip back from Michigan and making him swear before he got in the car that I would have complete radio control or he wasn’t driving with me...yeah that lasted about 22 minutes. Oh Bob, Doc...I will miss you! Thank you for my childhood and sharing your amazing wonderful kind daughters and Ricky...
I love you, Paula ( and Andrew, who made you sleep in leaves)

Pam, Rick, Becky and Susie... my deepest condolences for Uncle Bob. I have so many wonderful memories of Bob, and you folks. I had a great visit with Bob at our eye doctor! Had a ball talking to him while we were waiting for our appointments. Another great memory...
