I am very sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed my visits with Bob at the Cemetery and at Legacy Park Community Center.

The Legacy Park Community Center staff were so disappointed to hear the news of Bob’s passing. He loved coming to LPCC and we loved to see him every morning. He will be greatly missed. His family and friends are in our thoughts.

Nice to think of Bob and Sadie together again. Those Of us left will miss a loyal friend. Genuine, caring and helpful. I worked with him almost 20 years at the bank. Things I learned from Bob remain even in our retirement. We were blessed that he touched our lives.
