I'm so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Bob was a kind person and a special part of my younger years. I was 7 when Bob became my step dad. To make me feel welcome when we moved in with him, he gave me his Siamese cat. Her name was Wonton and she meant the world to me. Looking back now as an adult, his act of kindness is even greater. I remember whenever there was a big snowfall he would take me snow plowing with him. Those days were special because he would treat me to pancakes and hot cocoa at Marjos before we hit the road. He always made time for me. Even if his time set aside was to try and teach me cribbage which I still have no idea how to play, lol. There are many more good memories I hold dear and I will always treasure my time spent with him.

As a kid, Bob was like an uncle to me. He was always fun, loud, and competitive when we played euchre, volleyball, or whatever else the family seemed to get into. I was never good enough to be on his team since I'm clumsy and not near good enough at cards! Here's hoping he's got lots of worthy opponents in Heaven! Rest in peace!

Bob was always a joy to have at our horseshoe tournaments. Although he was loved by all, we knew when he showed up that no one had a chance to win. Things won’t be the same without him. Rest In Peace, Bob. Go easy on the angels playing shoes with you!

Our condolences to the family

I love you, Dad. Always have. Always will. Regardless. I’m sorry I wasn’t there. I think about our Lego towers in the living room, the clubhouse I helped you build when I was a kid. The string cheese and cherry 7UP on Fridays. The local baseball games we would go to. I’d give anything to be able to go back and give you one last hug and hear you call me “ Chelts “. Pam, my heart is with you. And I’m so sorry.
