Love you, Cindy

Bob was a very loving and caring man, a great friend always had a smile for everyone, Rest In Peace my friend

Dear Uncle Bob, Rest in peace now. Thanks for being such a great uncle. I always enjoyed when you came to visit us. I will miss you and love you always.

Uncle Bob, I know that are you in a better place with the love of your life Dawn.
A simple quite man brought value to many lives. A eternal place on my couch watching western moves during the night and sports during the day, usually the Royals or the Chiefs. You loved your boy and your beer, and we all loved you. Ronnie

You were always a great brother in law. You were always a much anticipated house guest. You were non demanding and I would love when you would come visit us, whether it was on Maui or here in New Harmony, UT. You were always very soft spoken - I never saw you angry. I loved your beautiful brown eyes and you lovely smile and laugh- that's what I remember most about you. I know you are at peace. You will be missed. Love you always, Leslie

Cigarettes and beer were two of Bob's joys as he relaxed in the warmth of living out his well earned retirement with his son and daughter-in-law at their lovely home in Kansas City, Kansas. Bob was twelve years older than me so our brother to brother relationship was not intimate but he as a "big brother" will always be thought of in the best of love residing in the same family. I always think of Bob kindly and recall a special event with him and cousin Nancy at the Katz drug...

Uncle Bob, I am so fortunate to have so many wonderful memories of you! I will never forget your constant smile, how you never hesitated to be silly with us when we were kids, and your quiet and genuine laugh. Thank you for being such a blessing in my life. I love you!
