In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

Dear Ervin Family,
I had been searching for "Preacher Bob," as I remember people calling him when I was a little girl (a long, long time ago) at our humble little church in Curran. I wasn't able to track him down. I really wanted to tell him how much his Sunday services continue to mean to me - all these years later.

Phyllis, Our hearts are broken with you in the passing of Bob. There is no doubt in my mind as to where he is now. We all know he is spending time with Jesus.
I have such fond memories of Bob at church. He was so funny when we did our plays. He had the most dry sense of humor and his delivery of his lines always made me laugh.
I feel so blessed to have known him and look forward to seeing him again in Heaven.
Blessings to your family.

Gayle and family, Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to the entire Ervin family as we learn of your Dad's passing. I have such fond memories of Bob traveling with the CBC youth group (June 2002) to do mission work in the Bay City, Michigan area. He was such a great role model for the youth and set a great example of doing a servants work to help those in need. I can still see him on the rooftop of a home working like a young man but almost 72 years old at that time. What a kind and sweet man...
