Robert Charles Uebelacker Jr.
Even though we knew Bob fairly well, we learned so much more about him after visiting your house last week. I had always thought of Bob as an extremely good-humored, intelligent guy. He was so much fun to have around, and he had such a variety of interests. The most special thing about him, to me, was the way you two were as a couple. You were best friends, and treated each other with respect, always. He was unfailingly sweet to you, as you were to him. Other couples could only wish that their relationships were as good as yours was.
After visiting you last week, we realized what a truly Renaissance man Bob was. His mind was thirsty for learning. He had interests in everything from ham radio, to model airplanes, to computers of all sorts, to jet propulsion, to tools, to photography, to any system that was technical, to computer gaming, to nature, exercise, travel and diving. It seems he wanted to learn about everything - life was a continual adventure to him. How sad that Bob, the intellectual adventurer, is no longer with us in body.
But Bob will always be with us in spirit, and in the memories we all carry of a wonderful man. We were lucky to have known him, and we are lucky to have you as a friend.

Sally, I will add Bob to our prayers. Blessings to you.

My husband, David Turner, and I enjoyed the many hiking outings we had with Bob in the mountains surrounding the Albuquerque area. He was alway ready with his dry, witty comments or observations. We enjoyed the many weekend breakfasts we had together and a chance to catch up on daily activities, funny stories about the animals, or about our vacations. I also remember fondly our many moves in the late '90's. From my office to your small apartment, to my apartment in Grants, NM to your house on the West side that you were preparing to sell. A true friend, you will be sorely missed. We will try to make sure that Sally continues some of these traditions, but it will NOT be the same without you!!!
I still can't believe that Bob is no longer here with us but he will always be with us in spirit. We was a wonderful, warm person who made everybody feel they were important to him. I loved calling your home and having Bob answer and having a long conversation with him about what was going on in both of our lives before he called to you to speak to me. I will always recall his soft and kind voice and his loving demeanor. Please remain my cherished friend throughout the coming difficult times so we can share many more old memories and create many new ones. My sincerest sympathy in your loss.
Both Fran and I are deeply saddened by your tragic loss. While we didn't know Bob as well as we would have liked, it was obvious after reading many of the entries in your guest book that he was a much loved and respected individual. I also am sure it took a very special person to win your heart. Please know that we are always available if you need our support during this difficult time. Our home here in Fredericksburg is always open
