Uncle Bob. How many kids can say their uncle owned a custard stand? Had a swimming pool in his basement! ? I did! He was like a character out of a sitcom. You knew that when he showed up the party was going to start and end with “Dress the kids” Thanks for the memories Uncle Bob. We’ll keep an eye on Aunt Shirley. Say hi to my mom.

Uncle Bob will be so missed by all, his jokes and sarcastic wit will always be in my thoughts. I will always remember the round robins we had at Xmas and him yelling DRESS THE KIDS... as we moved on to the next house.

My thoughts and prayers to the family and know that he is in a better place and already at the poker table with the rest of our heavenly gang.

love Cyndee
