I am so sorry for your loss. Bob and Jan were great neighbors and they were always so kind and "neighborly." I spoke with Bob when Jan passed away and even though he was missing her terribly, he was trying hard to adjust. My prayers are with your family.
So sorry for your loss. My deepest thoughts, prayers and condolences to Bob's family & friends. May he rest in peace. God Bless
So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I didn't know him well. I met him while he was a driver for the American Red Cross Medical Transportation Department. When he drove on Thursdays, I was his dispatcher. He was a very nice man. I enjoyed working with him.
I was lucky to have Mr. Bier as my teacher when he first came to Highland Park around 1977 when he started teaching 3rd grade. As a young, passionate teacher he quickly captured the attention and imagination of our class; his energy and sense of humor were tremendous assets. He was my teacher the next year as we both moved to 4th grade, and he solidified his place as one of the most influential teachers of my life. Since I grew up in the house next to Highland Park, I stayed in touch with him well beyond elementary school, and took my kids to visit him a few years ago before the old school closed. He was an excellent teacher and a great person. I wish there were more like him.
May you be encouraged by God's promise of eternal life.
I remember Bob as most people do. He was a kind and caring person who will be remembered always. God bless him and his family.
Mr Bier was a wonderful teacher!! He was my 4th grade teacher at Highland park many years ago. Both he and mrs bier were great!! Many fond memories of them. I was there when she was still Miss Kaufman and as an adult know I can completely appreciate the adoration they had for each other. RIP Mr Bier, you did many wonderful things for many people. Thank you!!
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
Mr. Bier had a passion for teaching and working with kids. Not only did he teach them book knowledge but also responsibility. He loved working with the patrol kids. He took his time with them. Today, I washed the mug that Jake took in for hot chocolate. One of the perks for being a patrol kid in the wintertime..On the bottom, there was Mr. Biers signature face with a wave and a smile.
God love you Mr. Bier.
I met Jan and Bob back in the late 80's when I was at Guinther School and the staff had to go to Highland Park for meetings. They were both friendly and welcoming. I am sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
We extend our condolences to all who are grieving Bob's passing. He was a dedicated teacher who always strived to build character and knowledge and made an effort to be a good friend to his associates. He was thoughtful, generous and helpful with his time and talents. He was looking forward to volunteering this spring with the Cuyahoga Valley Student Explorer Program and said it was a chance to give back for all the help it had given his students over the years.
Rest in peace Bob and Jan. We will miss you and our breakfasts together.

I am so sorry for your loss I know how it feels to loose a parent and the wound will heal over time but the memories will last a lifetime. my deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. I will keep you all in my prayers and even though I never had Mr. Bier I do remember him and he was an all around nice guy. He will be deeply missed
I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Bier. He was my 4th grade teacher at Highland Park, I had the honor of having him and Mrs. Bier as my teachers and My daughter's teacher at Sam Salem. One thing I remember about Mr. Bier, was when I was in 4th grade I got Chicken Pox and he had drawn a picture on the front of a card he sent home to me. The picture was my face and had boxes with wings all over it. He said "wouldn't it be funny if they were called chicken boxes." I just loved his sense of humor. R.I.P Mr. Bier. You are now with Mrs. Bier.
Bob, your passing was beautiful. Into the arms of Jan. I witnessed the love you shared. You and Jan were never meant to be apart. My heart breaks for those left behind. But you, Bob and Jan.... You are in the arms of love. Be joyful knowing they are one. A true love story...... Xoxo Mary
MY SON TIM ROBINSON HAD MR. BIER I AM TIM'S DAD. I DID EVERY FIELD TRIP WITH MR. BIER AND WE DID ALOT BACK THEN WE ALWAYS HAD A GREAT TIME. BY THE TIME MY DAUGHTER WENT TO SCHOOL 10 YEARS LATER WE COULD NOT DO THEM LIKE WE DID WITH MY SON. WE WOULD JUST LOAD UP THE CARS AND TAKE OFF TO MANY GREAT PLACES THAT HE PLANNED OUT. HE WAS A GREAT TEACHER AND A GREAT PERSON MY SON ALWAYS SAYS HE WAS HIS FAVORITE TEACHER HE EVER HAD. SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. TIM ROBINSON
I'm so sorry to hear about Bob's passing. He and Jan were both such very kind and giving people who surely enriched the lives of all who had the pleasure of knowing them. I will keep your family in my prayers.
Such an amazing man!!! You will be missed by so many. Many thoughts and prayers for his family. Mr. and Mrs. Bier both spoke often about their amazing family. I hope that you may find some peace in knowing how much they both meant to the countless children and families they touched over their many years of teaching.
My son, Matt, had Mr. Bier for 5th grade at Sam Salem in 1999. At first he thought he was the meanest teacher he ever had because he gave out so much homework. However, by the end of the school year he just loved Mr. Bier and thought he was the best teacher ever. He even wanted to write him a note to thank him for teaching him so much and to tell him what a good teacher he was. Unfortunately, he never wrote that note and I wish now that I would have insisted that he do it. I know it is a little late now, but thank you Mr. Bier for being that teacher that inspired my son to learn. He not only went on to do very well through the rest of his school years, but he went on to college and graduated with his Masters degree last year, and is now working and doing something he enjoys.
To his children and grandchildren, you should be very proud of your dad and grandfather. I truly believe he had a positive influence on many children's lives as he was a good teacher.
RIP Mr. Bier!
From A Very Appreciate Mom
I had both Mr and Mrs Bier in elementary school, they were great teachers and all around great people.My prayers are with family and friends in this hard time.God Bless
When I think of Mr. Bier, I think of our Crossing Guard Chief at Highland Park in 1997-98! What an Awesome calling to be a teacher! May God's love favor rest on the family of he and Mrs. Bier.
My thoughts and prayers to the family. I had Mr. Bier for 4th grade at Highland Park and had his wife for 2nd & 3rd grades at Guinther. They were both great teachers and I have fond memories of each of them. God Bless
I had the privilege of having both Mr. and Mrs. Bier as teachers at Highland Park. They shared a large open room and it was a wonderful learning opportunity for us. My condolences to your family during this very difficult time.
