I was shocked to hear of him passing. Wow! What a great guy, I can remember him at High School Basketball games that passion of watching Todd and screaming at Refs. He was a great guy to talk to and always a smile, I would say hello Mr.Wirtz he would reply that's my dad I'm just Bob. You will truly be missed, Rest in Peace.

He's been part of this family in what seems like forever. I enjoyed when they'd come for Christmas even though he picked out all my onions and bellpeppers. I appreciate even more what a wonderful husband he was to my sister. It's hard to believe that he's started a different journey. I will miss him.
