Edited from eulogy by Tony Bolfing read at the Rosary 5-16-16

First off, thank you all very much for being here to celebrate Papa and thank you for all the good times and great memories that you shared with him and Granny Franny, I'm so thankful that he is home with her again.

I'm Cousin Tony, grandchild number 10, I think? Being the son of Papa's oldest son, I was tasked with the great responsibility of passing along a family tradition of being named RobertStarting with my great grandfather, Robert Edward, then Papa, Robert Gustave, dad, who is Robert Philip followed by Robert Anthony and now my big boy Robert Davis. With all those wonderful Roberts, Davis and I have some big boots to fill.

I should have admitted this earlier, but I was his favorite. It was obvious for a lot of reasons that I really was his favorite. I mean every time I was with him growing up, he made sure to let me know how special I was. And all the days at the office doing diddly squat for us, he always made me feel special. There were so many times that he would brag about me and so many stories that he loved to tell about me. You know it took me a little while to figure this out, but that's what grandfathers are supposed to do and he was great at it.

Each of us were his favorite. Whoever he had just visited or whoever had come to Conroe for the weekend was his favorite. He would brag about Cousin Stacy and what a wonderful mother she is and about Brian and what a hard worker he is or how proud he was of Chris being in the Navy.

The simple truth is, every time any of us were with Papa, we were his favorite. And all of the great grandkids and great greatgrandchild were the same way. He knew that with each and every new birth, he had a new blessing to be thankful for and therefore, a NEW favorite. But actually, come to think of it, scratch all that favorite kid nonsense.as soon as Cody signed on that dotted line to play for Texas A&M, it was all over for the rest of us! Seeing you in an Aggie uniform was like the greatest thing ever, and when you elected not to play last season so you could focus on your studies, he was so proud of you.

But that's what Papa was great at, being proud of each of us, and loving each of us the most, making each of us feel like we're his favorite all the time.

To the family of Bob Bolfing,

I had the privilege of working with Bob during the seventies and eighties on gas projects in the North Sea and in Indonesia.

He was an outstanding gentleman always conducting himself with honesty and integrity. He was a pleasure to work with since he always kept his promises.

When my book was published in 2006, he came to the book signing.

He was an amazing individual and I am sure will be missed by all.

I am making a donation to his favorite charity.

All the best,

James R. Hutton

My father died when I was 10. When I married into this family 44 years ago, I received the precious gift of unconditional love from Bob and Fran Bolfing, my in-laws as the spouse of their eldest son, Phil.

I thanked God many times for the blessing he gave me, my 'father'.

Dad, when I walked into the back door of your Thornwood home on that first Thanksgiving in 1971 as Phil's girlfriend, you were on your knees emptying the pantry to spray for bugs while Mother was trying to make gravy!!!

You cheered for me, laughed and cried with me. You scolded me for my driving, talking with my hands in the air not on the steering wheel. You waited with us at the hospital for grandbabies to be born. You went with Tiffany to pick up Anthony's Aggie ring since he was interviewing for his job. You reflected my faith. You did all those things as my father. Thank you again Dad, Papa B, for helping me raise my children. I love you.

On this day, May 16, as 10 siblings said good-bye to my sweet mother in law in 2005, we promised, "to take care of Dad." The family collectively made good on that promise.

We love you both.
