So many good memories of happy times spent with Margaret and Bob over the years. Bob loved his family - he was a great friend - and will be missed by so many.

We were fortunate enough to meet Bob and Margaret a few years ago when I moved to Naples. We take care of Bailey when they travel. I loved that Bob and Margaret were always smiling when I’d see them. And always made me laugh. Both took us in as family , always inclusive of my husband and me. We are grateful to know them and call them friends.
I’ll never forget the story of Bailey locking herself in the bedroom at a Sunday dinner, and they had to remove the hinges off the door to let her out!
Bailey is a beautiful, sweet, and smart dog. I can tell she loves Bob and Margaret.
We love you very much and will miss you. Don’t worry about Margaret, she is loved and will always be cared for!!
Love, Scott & Michelle Moore

Bob was one of the kindest man I ever knew. He welcomed every one into his home. I loved chatting with Bob about Bailey and how he was feeling. He will be greatly missed. He became part of my Florida family. I was blessed to have known such a gentle soul. God Bless you Bob! ❤️❤️

I have so many different memories of Uncle Bob and I smile/laugh with most bc he was so sarcastic and I enjoyed every minute of it. One of the many things I’ll miss watching was the dynamic he had with Aunt Margaret. The Lucy to his Ricky. I can’t forget his plastic covered brownish sitting chair I enjoyed eating his candy on as a kid. I was so grateful to my my aunt and uncle down the block with an open home. Uncle Bob was a generous guy. I’ve seen him secretly give an extra tip, volunteer without sharing that he did so, and making sure I always felt like I had an extra Godfather on hand. I’m going to miss him so much. Sending his wife, children, and grandchildren a little extra strength to get through the next few days and years.
Love,
Theresa
