We knew Bobby (Doc) for many years and experienced life with Bobby at Lake Berryessa. He always had a smile, whit, and a kind hearted soul.

Dear Bobby,
You have been my older brother all my life. I can only reflect now on all of those cherished memories. The memories Mom and Dad gave us together growing up in San Francisco as a family. The five of us on Vacations during the summer together always brought funny stories back to the dinner table that kept us going. It was always an adventure traveling across the country in mom and dad's family car (hemi). And as we went out on our own, enjoying weekends together. It was only natural for you to turn a fishing trip into a fast ride on Lake Berryessa. Then came the barbecue dinner that night (the early years of your passion for cooking). We we're both young and enjoying life.
My marriage to Carol in Calistoga started a new Vacation adventure. Anniversary Celebration each Year as family and friends returned back to Indian Springs. I am grateful and blessed to have again spent time with you watching this family as new marriages and babies came. My step son Dave his wife Kate, grandsons Jacob, Austin and Tyler. My step daughter Cheri husband Andy, granddaughter Paige. That time spent together will always be in all of our hearts and spirit. Galatians 5:25
Your Brother Ron
