The Lord never made a better friend than Bob Ancell. He was true as true gets. I miss him. I will, I am sure, miss him for many years to come.

Dr. Ancell was a very sweet man, always personable and kind. I was always happy when I knew I would be working with him, as he was never difficult and always a complete professional. He will be missed. Thinking of his family and loved ones, and praying for you all.
RIP, Dr. Ancell.

I remember the first time I met Uncle Bob. I was 8 years old. My brother and I were at their Oak Park house. He made a football/ soccer ball out of old socks, got on his hands and knees in the living room and was the goalie as Rob and I took shots and tried to hit the couch with the socks. As I got older, he was always one to talk to about law, lawyers, and politics. He usually listened a lot more than he spoke. But his comments were always spot on. Very funny dry wit. Good judge of character. He was always supportive and encouraging. He will be missed.
