Bob was a member of America's Greatest Generation.
He served his country, raised his family and worked hard to overcome whatever challenge life put before him.
His word was his bond and his handshake was his signature.
Simply put, he gave more than he took. Thats the “Greatness” of his generation.
Bob's life was defined by impeccable personal integrity and altruism.
Much of what Santa Barbara has become is due to his work as a public servant and a volunteer. Kallman's Nursery planted the seeds of his altruism and Bob nurtured their ubiquitous growth in our community.
Bob Kallman the consummate teacher, showed me his values by the way he lived his life- not through his words.
Each of us must now move forward without Bob Kallman in our lives, but with his spirit in our hearts.
He will be missed, but never forgotten.
