Bob was a great guy to work for. We all had some good times, and enjoyed working for Bob. Our sympathy to all the family. Totally remember the Christmas Party at your Lake Lotawana house.

Jim had good times with Bob on the golf course around the area and we both enjoyed the group visits to our condo at Lake of the Ozarks. Always remember the wonderful brisket that Joan sent for us all enjoy. Being from California, that was a new dish I had never experienced! Bob was always the life of the party – we enjoyed playing cards in the evening. Joe and Jim are the only ones left from that group. May the fond memories of the good times you shared with Bob, help the you through your grief.

Bob was definitely one of a kind. Worked with him in Lee’s Summit. Never a dull day!
Always the life of the party. My prayers are with you, Joan and family. May he rest in peace now.
