Bob - Today I heard the loss of your life. But I am smiling right now because you left that kindness and memory with me. I will never forget that you where my first ever Business Trip out of California and it was your first day with TGW. Over the 23 years of my Career at RJ Sports you where the only person over all the meetings, business trips that ever told me that never let anyone tell you that RJ Sports is not a Brand. Its the peoples Brand be proud of that. I will alway think of you as we have Patron Shots. I will miss your jokes, the stories of China but most of all the beautiful person you were. It's like finding that needle in a hay stack and when you find it you don't want to lose it. You will be greatly missed but alwayed remembered here at RJ Sports. So here is for you Bob Tucker, 1 Last Patron Shot in your Honor. The Shot glass will never be empty! Siam Rimmer - RJ Sports & Robert Hung

Dear Bob,
Today is Tues June 12. I miss you. You fell asleep in your recliner, I dozed off in my chair. When I woke up you were gone. I am sad that I was not holding your hand when you left me. You'll be glad to know that your Celebration of Life Service is all planned. All the speakers you wanted are ready with memories and stories. Should be a great time. Going thru photos brought back so many happy and hilarious memories, proof that you and I had a truly wonderful life together. Rest in peace my favorite husband. I will always love you.

Loved our Friday nights at Lakeview golf course in Omaha where we sometimes would have Pot Luck . If Dianne was working at Home Depot Bob would watch the Food Channel and bake something unusual and very good to bring. He was so special to us all.

Dianne and Bob have gone through many years of heartache but always with humor. We always made a point to see them whenever we could ,not because he had ALS but because they were so fun! Dianne we will still visit you.

I am sure our daughter Pam met Bob at Lakeview with a big smile and a beer!
love, Sharon & Rich

Bob and I played baseball together at Burke High School. Bob was a year older than me. He was one of the most interesting school mates that I had. Not a particularly athletic looking guy, but he could throw more junky pitches than anyone I had ever encountered. Very effective both as a starter and as a reliever. What a great guy and a goofy sense of humor. What a tragedy that he should suffer with ALS. God's blessings and comfort to all of Bob's family and friends.

Bob and his loving wife, Dianne, were an incredible team. They were always there for each other and neither ever complained. Dianne is an awesome lady. She is strong, caring and was devoted to her husband for so many years. It was a relationship very few people experience. Our prayers and thoughts are with Dianne and family.

Best thoughts and love to you!
Terri and Mike Golter
