I'm sorry to learn of Bob's passing, I loved him beyond words! We've lost touch over the last few years but he was an incredible man and friend. Our families became friends as well. It always amazed me that he seemed to know everyone and have a great story to tell about them. I remember him often and have a few stories of my own as we spent lots of time together. He will be sadly missed, my prayers and thoughts are with his family. I wish I had known before the services so I could have seen you all. Much love,

Ryan- I am so sorry for the loss of your father. It has been MANY years since our paths have crossed but I remember when you and Josh were buddies in your early years. I can't begin to express how much I will miss your Dad. Bob and I had many great (and some not so great) experiences that we often talked about and shared laughs. He was a person that will always be remembered. I am sorry to say that I won't be able to attend the funeral but I can assure you that my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.

Ryan - I knew Bob for many years and we reconnected watching Urbana sports and Levi Boettcher. I enjoyed being with Bob on our rides to the games. He was a kind & gentle man and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Sam and I were so sorry to hear of the family's loss. Sam and Bobby used to talk cars and he told me that Bobby was so kind. He wouldn't mind growing old and being Bobby.
