Well, doggone it, he left before I got to have dinner with him! I remember running around with Debbie as teens and we'd stop by the house for a pit stop. While we were there, he'd come in and say something really smart that would have me guessing if he was serious or not for the longest time. He was always testing me or cracking me up. After we all aged a few years, he helped take care of my grandmother. She was so proud to have this man as part of her family. God bless all the survivors!
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Mr. Addison's passing. We have lived across the street for many years. I always enjoyed visiting with him, and knew I could always call on him if I needed to. I still expect to see him going out to pick up the paper. It would annoy us both to no end if it was late or didnt show at all. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. He will be missed greatly.
To the family, please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. I pray that through this ordeal you can draw strength from the God of Comfort when he says: As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise..." Daniel 12:13
Debbie, Bob will be greatly missed at the Minden Presbyterian Church and the choir. He was a dedicated member and was always at church whenever the doors were open. We will miss him. We will keep you and your family in our prayers. Trish and Lane Davidson
Mr. Bob was such an inspiration to me. I had the privilege of teaching him how to play the piano. I have NEVER met a more dedicated or disciplined student than he. Mr. Bob's quick humor and eagerness to learn, turned into a relationship of deep admiration, respect & friendship. I am a better person because of his influence in my life. I have rejoiced for him but cried for me. He has finally arrived at the destination he started on the day he was born. Mr. Bob, I will see you soon. . Ann Skipper Boykin
The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Robert Fredrick (Bob) Addison our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Bob. And to Bob it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Bob, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Bob's family and loved ones.
