Not sure what to say?

I forgot to add anything about my dad’s love of golf! Or the many friends he made over the years of playing. I will never forget the countless rounds I tagged along with him or the many rounds I would attempt to play along. Or the clubs I saw wizzing through the air! He could definitely be gruff, and he didn’t hold back when he had something to say!
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for all your kind thoughts about my dad!
~Amanda

Bob could come off gruff, but he had a big heart. He love to tell a story and wasn't shy about embellishing. I remember having a flat on the bike trail, One of those days when you feel like you dont have a friend in the world. I called Bob and he threatened to come on the lawnmower but he came in his truck and he took care of me❤

Many great times shared at the golf course and hockey rink! Sending love and sympathy to you, Amanda. Your dad loved life and that feeling was something he shared with all his many friends. I will miss him!

I am so sad to hear of his passing, he was a wonderful guy,, he will be missed by many.I shared many fond memories with Bobby..❤

Dear Amanda,
I am so sorry for your tremendous loss of your family. I am glad that you were able to be with him. My heart is with you.
With love,
Deborah Campbell

He was a really great guy and will be sorely missed. He always found a way to see the positive in any situation. Margie

When my Dad worked for the WMECO, Bobby and my Dad were good coffee buddies. I reconnected with Bobby later in life when I was a vendor for Amherst College. I remember how funny and welcoming he was. Thanks for sharing your Dad with the world.

Bob was such a nice guy, so hard to understand how sometimes life can be so sad and unfair. It was a pleasure knowing you Bob and running into you at Cumbies.
