Fishing Bob was a great man of character, integrity, and a mentor.. I fished in the club with Bob for over 3 years. I remember his deep laugh, good sense of humor, and a very good fisherman. We’ve lost another friend, but we’ve gained an Angel to watch over us.

Fishin Bob keep a tight line and may you Rest In Peace, you have a great partner now.

Bob was a good friend for many years . I could always count on him for a ride to work if it was snowing, Once we had snow on the ground for a week, he picked me up and brought me home every day. It was always fun going with him on his favorite thing, fishing in his boat. He never got over his friend, John, passing away, I know you two have a lot to catch up on. Rest in peace, my forever friend, I love you and I will see you later.......

I met Bob Sr. or Pop as I knew him almost 31 years ago when I started dating his son, Bobby, who became my husband. I spent many nights hanging out at his place. I noticed right away how all Bobby’s friends really liked to come say hello to Pop, and all Bobby’s friends called him Pop also. He was very kind, funny and generous. He loved to spend time with us and was always ready to take us out to eat. He continued his generosity when our kids were born by taking us to dinner often, bringing us diapers and never missed any birthdays or holidays with us! He was loved and will be missed by us all!! ❤️

Ed and Bob were fishing buddies. They both loved to fish. Bob was a great friend. Kind. Caring and loved to have lunch every day.. We loved to spend time with him. He always checked on us before we could check on him. He was a true friend to all that I knew. Bobby RIP and God bless the rest of your family and thank you for the memories we shared.

I am beyond blessed to have gotten to know this beautiful person even if it was for a short period of time. I always enjoyed seeing him come into the credit union on early mornings just to say hello to everyone even if he didn’t know you. There were times he would wait for me to finish helping someone else even if it took 45 minutes just to check up on me and make sure I was doing okay. He was never shy to making you feel cared for because he enjoyed being everyone’s friend.

Bob taught me to be a better baseball player. We spent many evenings together at Creeds Drag Strip when he raced his 1965 red and white topped Dodge.
