Not sure what to say?

Bob helped us find our first and only house we've ever owned. He made the process so comfortable for us. He was always very personable, relaxed and reassuring. That's just the kind of person he was.

Not only was he our amazing real estate agent, he was our friend. We got to know him even more when we asked him to be apart of our feature film and do some voice over parts because we knew he had broadcasting experience and that wonderful velvety voice. Our film would have never been...

I don't remember the exact course of events leading to it, but Bob and I formed a rock band in high school that gave us some great times together. Bob was the lead singer and I played lead guitar. He had the requisite energy, a crisp image, as well as a fine voice to front the band. His connections with radio also helped get us in front of new audiences.

About 12 years ago, I was working on a consulting assignment in Seattle and called Bob. We went out for dinner and...

Bob had been a very wonderful addition to our workplace when he arrived years ago. He was a special person that would always take the time to share ideas or solve problems. I enjoyed his wealth of knowledge whether it was discussing our business or politics, family or sports.
Outside of the workplace, I will miss the casual lunches, the 'boys night' cocktails, the late night visits to 24 hour fitness or your kind support of my son's baseball and football games.

It was an honor...

Miriam and family,
I am still in shock. Last week I saw on my Linkedin page that I had some some people looking at my site. One of them was my old high school friend, Bob Marvel. It had been a few weeks since he did that.I immediately tried to reach him via internet at his website online. This without success. Last night I was at a friends house who had been told by another friend that they had seen dear Bob's obituary in the local Easton, MD newspaper. My friend Bob is not the first...

Miriam, Bridget and family,
I will always remember Bob as a gracious,
unassuming, wonderful man. He had a smile
full of warmth and an ever present twinkle in his eyes. He will be missed.
All of my love.

Bob performed a miracle when he found our house last year. Every day I think, having this house is a miracle. Bob worked thru every issue that came up in a calm and professional way. My family and I will be eternally grateful or knowing and working with him and wish his family peace. Maria Ruano and the MacFarlane family

Bob was a great friend and colleague; a guy you could count on for support and discussion on just about any topic. If we weren’t discussing or debating we were considering how we would write about life’s memorable moments. Bob taught me so much about the craft of writing; he was a gifted journalist and editor who always encouraged with kindness and support. He inspired me not just with writing, but in business too; he was generous with his time and resources…Bob was a gem of a person who...

Miriam, please be patient with yourself as you adjust to the loss of your beloved, Bob. Sending prayers and loving thoughts to you and your family.

Bob was a great agent and more importantly, a great human being. Being newer in the busines, Bob always said hi when I passed through the office and took time to ask how I was doing. He was always willing to share his insight. We will all miss you Bob!
