  • Thoughts go out to the family while you grief the passing of Bob. Bob was good about keeping in touch with me over the years even though we didn’t see each other. It is hard to loose a cousin. Prayers to the family.

  • Bob, no words can explain the impact you had on myself and many others. Your quick wit and humor was what drew people in. I will miss our countless talks on music,food, and anything else that was pressing in our world. And, most of all, I’ll miss your smile.

    Thank you for everything you are and always will be and as always, Go Bombers!!
