Everyone who ever met or knew Bob is incredibly blessed. I'll never meet a man I'll admire more.
He was full of compassion, selfless, generous, humble & totally devoted to helping others. His face & voice gleamed with Godly radiance as he spoke about his mission trips. He always had pictures in his shirt pocket with smiling children and families whom he just helped, when I'd bump into him. He had either just returned, or was preparing to leave to help someone somewhere. He built medical facilities & brought medical equipment, built churches & kitchens & brought toys, & bikes, etc. He rolled up his sleeves & made things happen-big things, important things, essential things. He literally brought tons of help to 1,000s of people in need. In railroad cars, vans, trucks-anything with wheels. But the most important thing he ever brought was himself. Because when in Bob's presence, you could literally feel love & joy radiating from his spirit. He greeted everyone with a twinkle in his eye, a big smile, a bear hug or robust handshake & his wonderful warm resonant voice. He was a treasure! Bob loved everyone he ever met. He was a Godly man, a shining example, and a precious & dear friend.
