Carol, Jim, John, Marianne and Joanne
Bob was always our brother in law from the first time Carol introduced him to our family. What a wonderful, kind person who as my daughter-in-law said " Bob had such a gentle soul and the most kind eyes" So very true.
Thank you for sharing your brother with us. We hope you can smile even through your tears when you think about how lucky you were to have him as your long time companion and brother and all he means to you now and always....

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

My deepest sympathy is extended to Bobs loved ones. Bob was a friend to my late husband and someone I became acquainted with when I worked at Purdue. He was always courteous, had a wonderful sense of humor, and was a kind and pleasant man to interact with. May good memories be of comfort at this difficult time.
