I remember Bob and Irene from their visits out to Tulalip Beach where my folks, Stan and Virginia Schaefer, had a little beach house. I'd like to extend my sympathy to the whole family Weller family. My Auntie Jewel Beatty let me know about Bob and Irene's passing and I'll forward this onto my brothers, Jack and Steven Schaefer.
Bob was a true gentleman and a great person to be associated with on committees, etc. When he and Irene left Arlington, he left a void yet to be filled.
We have such fond memories of Bob & Irene visiting the winery. We enjoyed their enthusiastic visits. Our thoughts are with the Wollmuth and Weller families. Holly, Andy & Amy
You will be so very missed but never forgotten. Love you always. Ross and Mary
I spent many a lunch hour around the "round table" at Weller's with Bob and other community leaders. Bob stood out as the most gentle and good-humored man. Although I didn't interact as much with Irene, they were both "good people", as so many of the Greatest Generation were. Condolences to their families.
I was sorry to hear that Bob & Irene had both passed away. Bob called me a few months ago after my husband, Jim, passed away. They had been friends for many years. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of your family.
I was saddened to read of Bob and Irene's passing and extend my deepest sympathy with the loss of both.
I had the pleasure of working with Bob in his post-retirement years aboard the CareVan. I thoroughly enjoyed our treks around the county and beyond for the two years that the CareVan project was in service. Bob wheeled that 33 foot mobile vision/health screening van through many a tight spot! He was wonderful with the visitors and quickly put them to ease with his humor. Those were very memorable years. I had the pleasure of meeting Irene and Tony during those years. I also knew about Mary, as my sister worked in the travel business with Mary many years ago. Bob always fondly spoke of their children.
My fondest memory of Bob centered around an incident aboard the CareVan. Bob & Irene were soon to take a trip abroad. They both were so excited about the trip. A couple days before their adventure was to start, Bob & I were preparing to fix a strip of counter laminate that needed a bit of glue. Bob brought in some of his "special heavy duty" glue for the repair. The project turned messy and Bob & I became inseparable with fingers connected. Bob joked that he wasn't sure what Irene would think about me joining them on their trip! Fortunately, we were able to dissolve the glue and were left with raw fingers and a good story. Bob & Irene went on that adventure and very much enjoyed their trip.
There are so many fond "Bob" memories that I have cherished in the years since. I feel blessed and fortunate to have had Bob as a co-worker and friend.
