CandleI metjBob through his wife Vera, over 20 years ago, we worked together. He was always a kindand loving friend. He never minded sharing his moonshine. He could get some really great moonshine, back in the day. All kidding aside, It was always a blast seeing you. I will definitely miss him sitting in his chair, keeping everyone laughing and cutting up. Rest in Paradise Bob, we will all see you there again one day.

My dear friend. You meant the world to Mykenzie and I. It easies me to know that you’re your self again and that your stubborn old @$$ isn’t suffering any more. I know I’ll see you again some day and when we do my friend. We will partake on the streets of gold looking over the crystal rivers. Until then Rest In Peace. Always missed but, never forgotten. Love you buddy!

Thirty years ago I met Bob on the very first day I moved here. It was not my choice to be here so I wasn’t happy but Bob and Vera decided they were going to be my friends and help me and have ever since. I am very grateful to have known Bob I loved him and share a lot of great memories with him. Me and my family will miss him.
