This world has lost a gentle, loving man who will be missed by many. That beautiful smile is now lighting up the heavens- especially now that he is with Betty Lou. My condolences to Mike and Carolyn and their families as well as Bob's extended family. Peace to all

Please accept my sincere condolences dear family and friends. May prayers strengthen you and memories comfort you. And may you find hope and comfort in God our Father, who loves us, comfort your hearts and "make you firm". (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17).

Im so sorry for your loss. Rest assured life is precious to our Creator. He promises to act in our behalf.
1 Corinthians 15:26

RIP Uncle Bob, such an amazing and wonderful man. You will be missed by all. Your now at peace and no longer confused. We all love you so much!!

Bob, you have been in limbo too long. Now you are reconnected with Betty. I will miss you both! I have wonderful memories to look back on.

I have fond memories of Bob as a kid when the whole family would get together. As the youngest cousin, I was mostly an observer but I know of his laughter and infectious smile. I am so glad he and Bette had many happy years together.

Bob volunteered at NCH North Naples Hospital campus as a volunteer chaplain for 10 years. Bob volunteered three days per week and provided an amazing ministry to the patients, family members, staff and volunteers. His unconditional love, his non anxious presence, his BIG smile and gentle spirit provided inspiration and comfort. I am thankful for our friendship and will cherish his memory forever.
