I worked with Bob at Waddell & Reed for about five years. The joke at the office was that he picked me up on Amarillo Boulevard, when in reality he rescued a girl new to town who's car had overheated & had no other way to get to work. He was a surrogate grandpa to my boy. He took him fishing at MediPark & out to ride the ponies. Our prayers are with you, Shirley. Blessings.
Bob was a man who never met a stranger. He was a wonderful friend to all.
He found a way to help everyone who needed help. Finacial advising & CASA. Those kids needed help. He was the man to help them.
What a wonderful legacy Bob leaves for his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. They will not forget what a wonderful dad, grandfather, and great grandfather he was but a family orientated with all of his love.
I am proud to say that I am a cousin and I haven't seen him a lot in the last few years but very proud of him. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as they put their loved on in God's hands.
Bob was such a wonderful man and witness for the Lord. We shall miss him, his stories about his family and all he experienced that made him proud. Bob was our friend and fellow Christian. God bless and comfort each of you. Our deepest love, thoughts, and prayers are with you.
One of the many rewarding things about being Tory and Kaye Moore's brother-in-law is being privileged to be able to attend those few and all too rare family gatherings, characterized by the heart warming, humorous and gracious moments with Bob. Those moments of visiting with Bob will be fondly remembered.
