Momma June and family,
It is with a heavy heart that I heard of Bob's passing. I'm at a loss for words as I loved that man as my own father. He was a man with a big heart and personality. I learned alot from him and recall our talks and his pride and joy in all he done. I am a better person for having known Bob and I miss him .

Our cousins don't go away, they walk beside us each and every day, even when we can't see or touch them here in this realm, just know that we will see them again. Those Harris men believed in God, and family, and their community and strived to make this country great, and therefore their legacy will live on and be passed down through the generations.
May each one in Bob's immediate family be comforted by God, and know also that he will live forever in your hearts.
Rest in Peace cousin.

I played golf with Bob, 1st with the shriners and then got him to come over to the VB Seniors. I remember the first time we were on the same team. I told Bob to put the driver in the bag and only use his 3 wood, which he did. We played many years of golf together. A really good guy. Will miss him.
