Dear family and friends, please accept my deepest condolences. May God’s promises found at Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:29 bring you comfort during this difficult time.
Our prayers and thoughts are with each of you. Now Bob is with Dad, which is so special. I am Bob’s half brother in Colorado. As a child Bob spent time with us in Kansas, My brothers and I have special memories of our big brother. For me it was the tight legged pants, fashionable at the time, and mom tailoring those pants to Bob’s specifications. The responsibilities of life made all of us so busy and I lost touch with Bob over the years, I wish that wasn’t so. Please accept our condolences.
Mike and Nancy Snyder
So sorry to hear of Bobbie’s passing. My husband and I thought so much of him. I wish to extend our deepest sympathies.
Rebecca (Richard) MInich and family
Our thoughts & prayers are with you all. Dad & Bob are no doubt fishing & bowling with Mom keeping them in line. He will be missed by all.
