To the Dabreau Family;
Bob was one of the nicest men I have ever met. When I first came to NYCM he took me under his wing and help me get established. I enjoyed his company, always. I am so sorry for your loss.

My heart hurts for all of you. The memories that Uncle Bob has given (skiing, hunting, laughing over coffee, sage advice, funny stories, and shopping at "Sal's") - so many grieve today, knowing that he won't be laughing his booming laugh or bouncing a baby on his knee, again. It is always difficult to lose your dad, no matter what his age and no matter how full his life. Personally, I regret not skiing with him a few more times - I always learned so much on each slope. He was such a patient and humorous teacher. And I am glad that we all had time to tell Uncle Bob how fondly we remembered him (the 73 memories from Sami), but I know that you all wish for more time and more memories. We are really very, very sorry for your loss.

Cookie and family, I guess I've known Bob since i was a little girl through my brother Donald. I am glad that I got to visit with him when he came to Florida and spent a few hours with Donald. I am sure it was very special for both of them. My prayers are with you and your family at this very sad time.

Cookie and family, We were so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Knowing Bob as a State Trooper is one of the reasons that I went on to become a police officer myself. He was a good man and I enjoyed knowing him. Our prayers are with you all.

Cookie, Rob, Amy and all the family, We are so sorry about Bob passing and we are thinking of all of you. I was fortunate to work with Bob at NYCM and he was a pleasure everyday that he walked in the office, he always had a smile and was such a kind man. During his career with the police and with investigations at NYCM, he had to deal with "not so pleasant" people, but I can say that he handled himself well, that he always had a happy-go-lucky attitude, and I always enjoyed seeing him. I was glad to visit with him again a year or so ago at Old Forge while camping with the Andreasen's/Clark's/Dabreau's, it was a weekend that I will treasure, especially because Bob was there. Our sincere sympathies, Kathleen Dennin & Gordon Crossett

Thinking of all of you at this sad time. I remember that while working with Bob at Nydam's office, there was never a day when he came into the office without a smile on his face. I also remember my son, Billy, working with all of you at the Red Sleigh and how much he enjoyed it. He will be missed.
