I just learned of Bob's death today and am very sorry that I never kept in touch with Bob after my days at Landon Associates. He gave me my first job at Landon as a favor to my Dad and was just a wonderful person to work with and for. I have spent the last 30 years working for the Philadelphia Inquirer and could not have even gotten the job here without Bob's guidance and help in my first job. He was a wonderful person.
I will remember him at Mass on a weekly basis and pray for you and your family.
Dear Barbara, John, and Corinne, please accept my deepest sympathy. I am so very sorry to hear of Bob's passing.
With warmest regards from your cousin and family,
Thank you for speaking with me today about Bob, and for your kind words during this time of intense grief. I want to say once again how much I enjoyed all of my visits with Bob, to thank you for our friendship, and to wish for lessening of your grief as soon as time and memory will permit. Knowing the two of you I can readily imagine the love and support of your friends and family, but if you can think of anything I can help with I'm a phone call away. And remember 6 PM sharp!

Barbara, please accept my sympathy on your loss. My thoughts are with you at this sad time. Fondly Julia
Dear Barbara and Family,
It's been many years since we were all neighbors on Westgate Drive, but I have fond memories or those times. I recall Bob as a warm and humorous man who enjoyed his friends and neighbors. My late parents and brother would have wanted to extend their condolences along with mine.
Dear Barbara, Mike,Steve,Tom and John and all your families,
Arnie and I, Philip and Mary send you love and sympathy on your loss. Bob and all the Bairs were an important part of our lives in Rowayton. He was so proud of his family. You will miss him so much. We are thinking of you. Anne and Arnie Lisio and family
To Michael and his family and from all of us at GENALYTIX, we send our prayers at this difficult time of loss with our heartfelt thanks to a father and husband we did not know who served his family and country and certainly left a legacy of memories and pride that will be celebrated as the years progress. We leave the following sentiments and again our condolences.
"Do not stand at my memorial and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush of far-off birds in circling flight. I am the star shine of the night.
I am in every flower that blooms, I am in still and empty rooms. I am the child that yearns to sing, I am in every lovely thing. Do not stand at my memorial and cry, I am not there - I did not die. Attributed to Mary Elizabeth Frye (1905-2004) The GENALYTIX Family.
Hi Steve, I didn't know your dad but he sounds like he was a great father, husband, and friend. Please keep his memories in your heart. Use whatever he taught you to life to keep his memory alive. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please try and find comfort in knowing he was a great man.
We are sorry to hear of your loss Barbara, Georgine, & family. Our prayers & love go with you, Judy & Henry La Rose & family.
Our sincere condolences to Barbara and all of Robert's family, friends and loved ones. You are in our thoughts and prayers that God will give you peace, comfort you and mend the broken hearts. We are grateful for his service to our country in the U.S. Submarine Service on board the USS Sablefish SS-303 and the USS Atule SS-403. To our "Brother of the Dolphin" ... "Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones. Thank you for your service." -- Rev. Ray Fritz, National Chaplain United States Submarine Veterans, USSVI.
Thank you for your service to our country.
A grateful American
I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband Barbara, and for Mike, Steve, Tom and John, the loss of your father. I last saw Bob and Barbara at a gathering in New London at Kris Crawford Edward's home last year. It was so good to see Bob and Barbara after many years. I talked to Bob at length and he was much himself, though a bit less. We had a good talk. Kris happened to call me this evening and I told her I had read Bob's obituary in this morning's "New York Times." Kris, too, was caught off guard. She and I recalled our
experiences with Bob and Barbara, and Bob's love of the seas. We also recalled Barbara revealing her secret of using frozen hot dogs pieces to pull in the bluefish when they were running off the rocks at Rowayton Beach. I am thankful I had the opportunity to see Bob only last year. He had a great life. He will be missed. Sincerely, David Dyer, previously of Rowayton, Milford now for 32 years.
I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please find peace and comfort in Psalms 65:2.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Bairs. He certainly lived life with a twinkle in his eye!
I am sorry to hear about your loss. What an active and involved man your father was. I am sure he was surrounded by those he loved. Having recently lost a parent, i can share with you that it is a time filled with both sadness and revelation. Your father is immortalized in you, and those whose lives he touched... i hope you can all find some solace in that.
I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort brings you peace and a calm heart. ( 2 Peter 1:2)
Barbara, Please know my deepest thoughts are with you and your family. Bob was a wonderful person and his beautiful smile will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. Sincere thoughts to you and your family.
Sincerely, Lisa Nelson, Shoreline Dental
