My father loved music his favorite being Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen & Johnny Cash. He had about every genre of music in his large record collection. He loved to golf, play Trivial Pursuit, travel and spend time with his grandkids. He was also a Raider fan for life and he loved all animals.

You were the wisest man I knew.
You had a great sense of humor and always made me laugh.
I loved to listen to the stories of your life.
And, to the music you loved.
I miss you and will always love you.

You were always uncle bob, the cool uncle who would visit the reservation and pick me up.. We would spend an entire day cruising, talking and visiting everyone. You are and will always be that COOL uncle, your memories will forever be remembered.

P. Bob, I still can’t believe you are gone. You were such a kind and generous soul. You also had a wonderful sense of humor. I’m glad you were a part of my life and as much as I didn’t like being called “Boo” growing up. I didn’t mind when you called me by my nickname or when you wanted me to tell you the infamous Knock Knock joke 20,000 times. I loved to make you laugh. Gooey loved you so much. I’m glad you were her papa. We will miss you! Love Goo, Boo, Henry, John and Troy!

This is by far the hardest part of life. It was losing you. I did alot for you, and it was purely out of love. I don't know how I am going to be able to live without you. I know someday we"ll be together. Thank you for being my father you were the best! I will love you eternally. ❤❤
Love always ,
