Our family had great memories of Bob & Carol attending all the sporting events that Joe was in. They both had happy faces and encouraging words for the kids. I'm sure he will be greatly missed by his family.

I knew Bob through his Aunt Mildred and her brother, Robert (Bobs father). Bob always seemed to be a caring person especially for his wife, children and grandchildren. He enjoyed life and also a good laugh. His health deteriorated in his later years, but he accepted it as it was. He is now blessed to be in his eternal home with God. My condolences to Carol and all his family.
