Hi Dad. I miss you so much it hurts. I cry every single day. I can't tell you how many times I pick up my phone to call you and then a wave of sadness rushes over me when reality strikes. Halloween is just around the corner. With the changing of seasons brings a deeper sadness. Tay says it best--we feel like we are leaving you behind. You passed away in the heat of the summer and so the chill in the morning air is a bitter reminder that you aren't here to spend the holidays with us. I pray you give us strength to get through this difficult time of the year. I love you, dad. I'll miss you always.

You were a good father, husband, and friend. You were also my favorite coach. You will be dearly missed

I promise to continue doing everything I can to pay tribute to you, Dad, and to honor your memory. We all think of you every hour of every single day and will miss you forever. Happy 71st Birthday... I love you!!!!

Happy Birthday, Dad. I will love and miss you always. I baked you a cake tonight, sang "happy birthday" to you, gave you a card and sent a balloon up to you. I love you...

Bob thanks for always being a friend and welcoming me into your family. You have an amazing family and wonderful, beautiful daughters. Erin is one of my best friends and she loved you more than anything. I feel lucky to have known such a good man.

Grandpa, it's hard knowing your gone but I know that you will always be in my heart and that you will go with me where ever I go, watching over me. I have had so many great memories with you! I remember when I was around four or five you would babysit me and every morning you would take me to Vons and you would let me pick out two donuts (the longer ones). My parents didn't want me to have two donuts so they would be upset but you would say "There's nothing they can do about it" and thinking about that makes me smile! You would always pick me up and take me for lunch and then we would go to the Dollar Tree, 99 cents store, or the mall. Wherever we'd go we would always goof around. I would try on scarves and hats and you would always help me grab them because I couldn't reach them. At the end you would always get me something even though I said no, you did. When we would be at lunch, me and you would talk and talk. You would tell me stories about your life and just from those few stories it seems like you had an adventurous and amazing life! I always had so much fun hanging out with you! I'm just so glad that not just me but everyone got to spend another six months with you. I'm so glad though that you got to see me graduate from David M. Cox in the same place we would have Grandparents day! I loved you coming to it! I will miss you dearly grandpa! You will always be in my heart. I will always be your little dweeber, and I will always remember our memories together like when I would say "Don't tease me papa" when you would tease me or joke with me! Like I say grandpa, all good things must come to an end. Goodbye Papa!
July 17, 2013
I love you Grandpa. And I know you are in our hearts now. I really miss you so much. Goodbye Grandpa.
July 16, 2013
Our house seems so empty and lonely without you, Grandpa. I keep looking for you everywhere but I can't find you. Whenever I hear the backdoor open, I run to it because I think it's you coming inside. I sit in your seat on the coach and sniff the cushion because it helps me remember you. Since the day my mommy brought me home 2.5 years ago, you've been there with me, 24/7--when she was at work or wherever... I always tried to protect you--especially when I sensed you weren't feeling well--and I tried to lick your wounds to make you feel better (even though you yelled at me for it cuz you didn't want dog slobber on your legs!). You were my buddy, Grandpa, and I'll never forget you. I love you! Love, Dylan

Bobby, I will help Erin get your lawn as green as mine, I will also miss you so much, but now you can look out for my mom up there and I will watch out for daughter down here. Love Lindi and Yvonne

I will remember our time together at the beach volley ball tournaments. He loved them and I enjoyed his stories. My thoughts to Erin and family who were always there for Bob.

In 1975, we bought our house right across the street from the Niemeyer family - we have been friends ever since (by the way the name of that street is Amigo).
Over the years, whenever we got together, we always reminisced about the pot luck dinners with the Bosses, the Lagers, the Vokoleks and remembered countless funny stories about our children.
My husband Peter and I immigrated from communist Czechoslovakia - so different from California. Whenever we needed help and/or advice, Bob was there for us. Then and later, when the Niemeyers moved to Nevada, as well.
The story I want to share is about Bob's generosity. For a long time, more than anything, I wanted to see Elvis Presley in concert - Peter was a huge fan also, the tickets were expensive and hard to get. In 1976, for my birthday, Bob and Patti got us tickets to see The King in Las Vegas Hilton. I am forever grateful.
Bob and Peter, we miss you, we know you are watching over us.

I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to spend the past few weeks at the house with you. We got to bond even more and create special memories that will last a lifetime. I'll always remember picking out doughnuts with you before going bowling, and tons of other fun times. It means so much to me that you were able to come to my 8th Grade Graduation. You're forever in my heart, Pappa, and I love you!

Bob,
I will remember you as a great friend. I will miss our long talks and laughing about how goofy Dylan would be when he knew he was about to go for a walk. I was always impressed about how you loved your "Girls" and the endless amount of funny stories you had about each of them. I know you were not feeling well a lot of the time but you made time for me and hardly complained. You may not of known that you did not need to be strong. It was ok to just sit and relax. You put up the good fight those last few months. I know it was hard but you had your plan so rest knowing your life had a purpose.
With Love,
Nick

I remember getting ready to play in my first Varsity game last year. I was so nervous... But the thing that pumped me up and made me play even harder was seeing you there supporting me from the sidelines. I love you Grandpa!
July 14, 2013
Rest in peace Bob.
July 14, 2013
We had some great times together and fun parties at your house. I remember the time we took a road trip after high school to your cousins house in Washinton State. Of course we had to take a side trip to Reno on the way and I lost $140 playing the slots. That was a lot of money in those days. I think we had to borrow gas money from Bob's aunt to get home. Some fun times. And then there was the time he took me to a production studio in Chatsworth. That's all I am saying in this space.

Rest in peace my friend.

"Bobby" will live in my high school memories as one of the "fun guys". I loved his upbeat, open style and sunny smile. Those Mustang glory days were made brighter by his presence.

It won't be the same watching professional beach volleyball without you, Bob. You were always there first thing in the morning with your green windbreaker on no matter the temperature. But we all know that you had a Rosies Raiders T-shirt on underneath.

Your family is bringing you "home" to Hermosa Beach for your final resting place. We are honored and blessed that you called our town your home for so many years and contributed so much.

Rest in peace, my friend.

Spending summers and weekends on the beach at 22nd Street w/the fam, working on his golden bronze tan; getting snacks from the Green Store; coaching Little League at Clark Stadium; picnics at Poliwog Park; traveling to all of the AVP tourneys (but Manhattan was still his favorite!); Mustangs vs. Seahawks; dinners w/the fam at Vince's; playing games at the Redondo Fun Factory; fishing off the Redondo Pier; walking around/dining in downtown Hermosa; shopping at the Galleria... These were some of Dad's favorite things about "home" <3
July 13, 2013
Dad, you've been my best friend, my "partner-in-crime", my mentor, and my #1 fan. I can't possibly say "good-bye" to you because I know you'll live on forever in my heart and mind, through the countless memories and funny stories about you, our family traditions... So instead, "see you later, Dad. I love you!"
July 13, 2013
I miss you more than words can say, Dad. While "escaping" into TV last night, one of our favorite movies came on (The Shawshank Redemption), and a quote from it reminded me of you: "I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend." I love you, Dad. You're in a better place now...
July 13, 2013
Dad,
I am still in disbelief that you are no longer with us. No words can describe how badly my heart aches for you every single second of every single day. I listen to your voicemails just to hear your voice again. I will forever miss our long chats, our lunch dates and filling out “Conversations with My Father” and learning all about your life. No matter what has happened in our lives or choices we have made, I am proud of the man you were and am honored to be your daughter. Your love for life was bursting at the seams, at times, like a little kid—how excited you were during Christmas time and on Christmas morning, your love for junk food runs at odd hours of the night, and “checking the Halloween candy for anything suspicious” (while you simultaneously raided us for Babe Ruth candy bars, Snickers and Sugar Daddies). I loved our years of trick-or-treating together and, even when my little legs were tired, you would remind me of all the candy I could get if I just went one more house, one more block, one more hour. Your joy for Christmas is something I will carry with me always. I will never forget reenacting our “shocked” Christmas morning faces because the first 3 takes the camcorder was malfunctioning. I will always cherish the pride you felt on my wedding day and how you spun me around like a princess to our song—“Forever Young” by Rod Stewart. I have heard that song more since you passed than I have in all of my 29 years on earth. Thank you for that. While I cherish all the times we had, I will ache for times that never had the chance to transpire—our trip to Williamsport to see the Little League World Series, you getting to see my house one more time and feed “those damn deer”, and, most importantly, you seeing me have babies someday. I have planned a trip to Williamsport to attend the Little League World Series in August for you, dad, and will spread some of your ashes there so I can say we finally got our trip. It isn't exactly how I planned, but you will finally have made it to Williamsport. I will think of you always and miss you every single day. I will keep you alive in stories and pictures I will share with my children someday. I will always be your “Turkey Trot”, “Little Dude”, and “Your Little Angle”. I love you, dad. Save us the best seats in Heaven

Bob was my Pony League Coach on the Braves. When I showed up for practice I thought it was some kind of a joke when they said this young guy was our coach. I have never had a better time playing baseball than when playing for Bob. He had such a way of relating to all of us kids. I think that is when I was introduced to a pizza party, and we had many. He truly motivated me to be the best I could be. He was the best!
July 12, 2013
Even though our family was blessed with "bonus" time with you, it is still so hard to believe you are gone. You will shine on forever through all of your family. I will miss your smile, your laugh, your guidance, your perfections, and your imperfections. Thank you for being my Dad. Until we meet again, goodnight.
July 12, 2013
Thank you for being my Dad. Thank you for teaching me to love my children unconditionally and to spoil them rotten. You will live on in my heart and in theirs. I am going to miss our family dinners, Friday slurpee runs, and simply being able to pick up the phone and chat with you for hours. I will miss your advice and friendship. I am honored to have you as my Dad. You are dearly missed. This is not goodbye, just goodnight.
July 12, 2013
I carry your heart in my heart-You shaped my young life, and I love the last gift you gave me was connection to my family. The job I now hold has alot to do with you. I work to serve those more vulnerable than me-a lesson I learned from you-I will miss your singing and your tall tales-I carry your heart in my heart-all my love -lisa
July 12, 2013
Erin and family - our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. He was a great man, and he will be missed! He is now at peace and has no more pain... You will always miss him, and as time goes by the hurt and pain does get easier. Please don't forget that we are here for you.
July 12, 2013
Bob, I will always remember you for the wonderful kind living father that you were to your four girls,grandchildren and to pat! I love how whenever I would see you , you had the sweet welcoming cheerful smile and spirit that you always had!! I will miss you and will always remember you as an amazing kind man! Xoxoxox. Love rachel jonah and family

I feel privileged to have known Bob for the last 25 years. He has been an incredible friend and mentor. I have learned many things over the years from him. I have had the opportunity to model after such an individual with the foresight and vision of the future in both business and my personal life. Bob earned the respect of many, not only in the business world, but I believe in his personal life. I saw him as a wonderful parent, husband, and father. He enjoyed and loved his family deeply. He carried his faith into the lives of the less fortunate. He gave of his time and knowledge freely, and graciously. I will dearly miss him, as a true friend. A friend that I could always count on for an honest answer to my many questions. He helped me to strive for higher goals. He was there when I got frustrated or discouraged. He tolerated a great deal from me, and I will eternally be grateful to him. I will continue to strive to make him proud, as I know he will be watching. It is my turn to carry his torch forward, for him. We love you, Bob.

Erin Janice,
Sending you strong spirit and peace! You loved your Dad so much & he loved and adored you! That will never ever change...it will just be in a new and unique way. You will be in my prayers every day!

Erin and Niemeyer Family,
Your father and grandfather will always be wonderful man and influence in your lives. Although it is difficult now, your feelings will ease with the strong his memory and those that you shared together. He has bridged to a better place, resting in peace that allows his spirit to revisit you anytime. God Bless and Love!
July 11, 2013
God, please bless our cousin Bob...keep him under your wing and give him peace. The trials and tribulations of this world are behind him, and he's healthy, happy, and reunited with the loved ones who went before. But we are still here in this human realm, missing him, grieving for a life cut short, and trying to cope. To the whole Niemeyer family, you will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers as you travel through these dark days. Hoping that some happy memories will come in and provide a smile for even a moment. Sending love.
July 10, 2013
Erin and family, I extend my best to you and your family. Your father was a good man and one I was fortunate to know. I will remember his smile and happiness when I would see you and him at the vollyball tournaments. God bless you Robert Niemeyer. Erin always here for you. Call any time.
