I knew Robert during our time together at the U of Maine in Orono, Maine...as we were both fellow Chemical Engineers as well as fellow fraternity brothers..and both wound up associated with the Paper Industry. Bob's younger days were spent in Millinocket Maine...where I found myself after some initial years in the industry. I'm so sorry to hear that Bob has passed away and my condolences to Candie whom I also knew before they were married or had any children. I still think often of Bobby and his unique personality which I'm sure he carried to his last days. I'm sorry that we fell out of touch so many years ago, but have always wished Bobby well. May there be comfort and solace within his family that his robust and joyful spirit will indeed never die.

Dear Courtney, Hume Family and Friends:
Bob was an inspiration to us all. His warmth, humility, and positive attitude towards any challenge he faced was a source of encouragement for all of us. May you be comforted by your memories of him. He will certainly be missed by all.

I worked with Bob when he first arrived at 3m. His suspenders were his trade mark. Our Condolences to his family.
I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I feel very lucky that I had the chance to know him, hear the laugh, and see the smile.
My deepest sympathy to his family.

Jobin and Hume Family,

Candie and Bob,
It was with great sadness that I read of Bob's passing. I so enjoyed his sense of humor at the bridge table in St. Rita's duplicate in Cottage Grove. It was added priviledge to meet your son, Bob, when he was in my sixth grade class at Grey Cloud.
You both and all of your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

I really enjoyed working with and for Bob in the laboratory. He really enjoyed being involved with everyone. He also showed a great deal of patience, just waiting for people to figure out what his latest idea was all about. A more intelligent, inventive and caring person I'll probably never meet. It was an honor to have known Bob over the years.
Bob was a great friend, a one of a kind person, whose memory will always be treasured by those of us who were fortunate enough to know him.
"Think about it!" he would often say to us, after presenting a brilliant but very challenging new idea. This week we are thinking about him, and the memories are heart-warming.
He will surely be missed by his family and friends.
I am soooo sorry to hear of your loss! I remember many years of him shaking his head at the dumb things I said/did! My thoughts and prayers are with you all!!!!!
A better friend no one could have...He will be at peace not..my thoughts and prayers with you all
Candie and family
So very sorry to hear about Bob's passing. We were very close growing up. You will be in our prayers.
You are all in my deepest thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Dear Courtney, Hume Family and Friends,
I am so sad to hear of your beloved father's passing. Please know that your entire family is in my prayers, today and always. Please try to find peace in knowing that Bob is safely at Home with God and his pain is no longer. Courtney, I still can hear the stories you shared of Dad and his fishing necklace. My thoughts and deepest sympathies are with you.
Courtney, may you find comfort and strength at this difficult time.
The heavans are happy and the earth is sad. I am sorry for your loss.
Candi: I am so sorry to learn of your family's loss. May you find comfort in knowing others are thinking of you.
We only met Bob a couple of times and realized what a great person he was: warm, kind, gentle and caring! We knew him best through our Grandchildren as 'Grampert'. A big 'Thank You' Grampert for accepting and loving everyone as though they were all part of your immediate family! You will be missed by those whose lives you've touched...Because of that, you will definitely live on! Peace and strength to Candie, Jobin, Courtney, Bob and Ashley.
Bob was my trout and salmon fishing buddy, my mentor and good friend. He will certainly be missed by all. My prayers are with the Hume family.
Dearest Candie, Jobin, Courtney, Ashley and Bob: my heart breaks for you. The world is now without a wonderful man, loving husband, and devoted father and grandfather. Heaven now contains a beautiful angel to watch over you all.
We miss our Grampert already.
Love to you all today and always,
Angie, Travis and Evelyn
