We met Bob years ago at a 485th reunion. What a honorable man he was and a delight to be around. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his friends. We have lost a great man. May he be held in our Lords arms and reunited with all his brothers.He will be deeply missed by my dad Robert Hickman and all the 15th 485th

I am privileged to know Bob as a WWII hero and patriot, family man of great faith, friend, scholar, and a life of service. Just one of many honors bestowed was the Civitan Four Chaplains award. He is a role model for all who are blessed to know him. He is with Lynda, and is surely at peace.

I was so very sorry to hear about Robert's passing. I was so very blessed to have Robert and Lynda as my godparents. .

My faith provides comfort and assurance that as Lynda welcomed Robert in Heaven, Robert is wrapped in God's loving embrace.

Heaven gained another angel indeed.

I will miss and think of Robert everyday as I think of Lynda, my mom and Robert' s life long friend, my Dick Patton

I fondly recall how hard Robert and my dad laughed when they spoke and how hard Robert would laugh when he told me stories about he and my dad.

Great and precious memoies!

My love and prayers to all the Hanson's

How happy I am for Bob to be with Lynda agin. How sad I am for all who loved him . HEAVEN IS GETTING SWEETER ALL THE TIME. Bob use to come to Il. And I missed him doing that once Lucile and Pat died. Pat and Bob were 1st cousins. He and I became good friends over the Internet. It has kept us both in the loop about our families. I pray for God you comfort as you mourn him. He will be greatly missed. Thank you Kathy for letting me know. Love George and Connie Patterson
