Dear Bob, Thank you for the love that you always showed to all of us, and your patience with us as we were growing up... I will always remember your Daily Planet newspaper and how you card catalogued all the books along the third floor hall (Dewey Decimal System), and listening to your Army stories about being an MP in Korea during that conflict. And we loved the way you made our daughters feel special, with you hospitality and wonderful smile.

We love you Uncle Bob and will remember you always. Thank you for being a part of our lives.

With love from Ric, Linda, Lee, and Andrea Richter

Bob, you will be remembered through our family archive of photos and copies of letters you sent to your older brothers during WW2, including the "Daily Planet." You, too, were a veteran, and told us that as one of your duties during the Korean War, the Army had you giving driver's license tests when you, yourself, didn't have a license. Typical Army.
Although we didn't see you often, we miss your texts and emails.
