Uncle Bob always treated me with kindness, patience, and love. His heart and spirit were so very generous and the warm memories I have of him start as a young child taking me to the fire department and continue for half a century. As a young child growing up, he was such a constant presence in my life at family get togethers or vacations that it is hard for me to imagine my childhood without him. My late sister Jill loved him very much.
Over the last 20 years, no family visit to California was complete without a stop to see Uncle Bob and Aunt Audrey at their lovely home in Redding.
My wife Eko and sons Tai and Ken will miss him.
