I knew Bob from high school days in Cleveland. We would frequent Marymount dances together. I had the privilege of knowing Kathy and we spent many good times together. I reconnected with Bob a couple years ago, in Boca Raton,
and we had a terrific evening laughing about the old days. We had several conversations only a few days ago in which I expressed how much our friendship meant to me. See you on the other side, Bob.

Bob & Kathy were our next door neighbors on Brickmill for 14 years. You could not ask for better neighbors. I remember Bob cutting his grass every Friday. He & Kathy were so much fun. Our deepest sympathy to Brittany, Chris & Kristin. Even though we haven't seen each other for a long time, you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

We had the privilege of working with Bob at Ganley. He was a kind, genuine man. We would frequently run into him and Kathy at the reverse raffles, held at Michaud's. What a great looking couple they were. May your memories of him be a blessing. Our Sincere Condolences .


I am so sorry you have lost your beloved brother and best friend, Bob. Always cherish the many good memories between you and Bob, from his birth through adulthood. There will always a special bond between you and Bob.

You are a true blessing in my life! So glad I met Bob through you.

Lots and lots of love,


Good Guy, Good Car Guy, RIP. rrh

What a great guy. Sad

My dear cousin Bob will be remedied for his joy and laughter. For his ability to tell a great story and joke (youd almost mistake him for a U of M fan). We love him. Well miss him.
