My heart hurts for all of you. I met Bob when I taught at KEC in the Early Childhood program. He was so kind and always helpful. If I needed something, he was right there. Bob will be missed by all who knew him.

My dear nephew - I can still see you on your trike riding up and down your parents' driveway in Genoa. It doesn't seem all that long ago. I'll always remember the warmth with which you greeted us at our biennial trips to Illinois - and the affection we had for you in return. We were all so lucky to have been able to experience your kindness, your affection, your interest in each of us, and your goodness. We will all miss you.

Bob was dedicated to his family, friends, coworkers and his job. He always gave a 110% to everything. He always had a smile and a kind word. He was loved by his coworkers who could depend on him for whatever they asked of him. He was such an awesome individual and will be truly missed, but never forgotten. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this very difficult time.

I was so sorry to hear about Bob. I worked with him for 3 years at KEC. He would come into my room each day and say, "how ya doin'?" and on Friday would always say, "Happy Friday. Any plans for the weekend?" He would light up when he talked about his family, grandkids, cruises..... He was such a good soul. My condolences to his friends and family. We all lost a good one!
