Bob ( as so many knew him) is survived by his wife of over 51 years; his 2 son's Peter & Bruce who are continuing the tradition of the Gasvoda Farm of over 100 years. He is also survived by his three beautiful granddaughter's, Faith, Hope and Ashlynn, who were the joy of his life.

Bob will be greatly missed by all who knew him and it will take our community time to get used to not seeing Bob & his faithful friend and companion "Hooch" buzzing down the road.

Memorial donations can be made in Bob's name to the Big Sandy Library building fund; to the Big Sandy Medical Center or to the donor's choice.
