Sharlene williams... I am Bob's first cousin. Although I had not seen Bob in decades, I would have recognized him in an instant. That proud prominite dimple in his chin, sported his Mother's look. As a young girl with three brothers of my own I remember almost every Christmas break in grade school, was more of a dread to me than fun. Aunt Veda and Uncle Bob would bring the 4 boys and stay with us here in Kansas for an extended amount of time through the holiday. That's 7 boys, ugggg. I really was disgusted there were no girl cousins in the family of theirs. None the less, we did have fun, teasing and taunting the younger cousins. Bob was as I remember, the more quiet of the 4. As they grew into adults, he towered above the rest and remained the quiet one always with a warm grin and soft eyes. I wish we could've been closer in our adult lives but as a child, Bob was one of the 7 boys that I never minded being around, even if he was "just another boy". Rest in peace Bob. (Huggs to the family)

Scott who is our son in law (runt of the litter).I remember the first time we met Bob, Dean and Shane thinking that these are some big gruff men. But when they each gave me a hug it was like what you would image getting hugs from big teddy bears. We think the world of Scott and all The Townsend’s. I know Bob will be missed by all his family. We love you Scott and send condolences to all this loving family! Hugs to Tiff, Matt and all Townsend’s.
