Robert definitely not “Bob” was such a cheerful guy, and his smile would light up as he greeted friends and visitors at meetings with Kiwanians. I am a member of the Kiwanis club of Kennewick, and enjoyed knowing and visiting with Robert when he often visited our club.
He served as an example of a respectd and admired Kiwanian, and person.
My sincere sympathy goes to his family.
He will be truly missed by our members.
I had the pleasure of working with Robert at Meier Architecture and Engineering. He was involved with our projects in Belgium, Taiwan, Latvia and Egypt, to name just a few. His charm, smile and infectious positive outlook allowed him to overcome international language barriers and to establish friendships with ease. I am glad I had the opportunity to work with and get to know Robert.
Chris, Alicia, and Amy-
Your dad was a superhero volunteer who help make this a better community for all of us. It was our privilege to know him and your family. God bless you all.
Robert, You were one who was always suprising us. I will miss your laughter and enthusiasm for life including all the time and energy you gave to Kiwanis. Especially, Kiwanis was rewarded for your heart for the youth. I am blessed for having the opportunity to know you. Kurt
Chris, Alicia, and Amy,
We have had the pleasure of knowing your Dad since the Rowdies were playing soccer many years ago. He continued to be a good friend after that and although we seldom saw him, whenever we did he would always greet us with his great big smile and a warm hug. We will long remember him as being a wonderful friend to his community and we wish you peace as you bid farewell to him.

Dear Chris, Alicia, and Amy,
My memories of your dad date back to our days on the soccer field. I most remember his smile and encouragement, and most especially, his love for you. He will be deeply missed.
Dear Chris, Alicia and Amy,
As you know, your father was an amazing man and made our community a better place through thousands of hours of service impacting many lives. I had the privilege of being one of his KEY Club officers, then co-Advisor and friend. He was my mentor and I respect him greatly.
Every time I saw him, he gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheek, which I knew he wished he could be sharing with each of you. We laughed many times at how much I reminded him of his beloved daughters.
Thank you for sharing him with so many. I wish you much peace and joy knowing your father was a shining example of servant hood and walking in Light and Love with his fellow sisters and brothers.
With much love and admiration,
Chris, Alicia and Amy:
We were so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. Robert worked for us at Set-Point Control, here in Richland. He was our Food Industry specialist and he did a great job for us. I enjoyed him and his terrific sense of humor.
We ran into him frequently at the County Fair and the Sausage Fest. He was a good friend. We will miss him. God bless you.

Dear Chris, Alicia & Amy,
Your Dad was a dear friend over the many years that we have known him. He was always enthusiastic, positive and not a bet afraid of challenges.
