Dearest Nancy,

We've never met but my husband and I had the good fortune to meet Bob on a gentle afternoon walking South on Norway some years back. After hearing the clatter of footsteps, he called out, "who goes there?" We introduced ourselves and our two dogs. He spoke of the beauty of Door County especially Ephraim and how much he cared for this place. He said that while he had lost lots of his vision it wasn't going to stop him from taking a walk on a beautiful day. When you say he had a twinkle in his eye and a skip in his step that is so true. He waived, gave us a big smile, and continued his walk with birds in song. We often looked over toward your home as we walked by in hopes we'd see again the kindred spirit we met on a fine day. He left a mark.

Our sincerest condolences to you and your family.

Dear Nancy and family,
Bob was my sponsor at the time I joined the then Lake Forest Rotary Club in which he was such an active force. This was in the early 1980's, in connection with which my wife and I mingled with Nancy and him. We enjoyed talking of our mutual love of sailing, and of Door County. We share connections to Canada, and especially to Toronto where Bob was born. The last time I saw Bob was in Lake Forest at the Deer Path Inn around the time of his purchase of a wonderful new full size pick-up truck. He was so happy when he said, Every man sometime in his lifetime should own a pickup truck, and he proceeded to show me his new acquisition, beaming at the prospect of enjoying this first truck and moment in his life. Please accept our sincere expressions of sympathy at the time of Bob's passing. He touched many friends in positive ways, and will be missed.
Sincerely,
Dick (and Betsy) Rutledge
