Growing up next to Mr. Wiegand and his wife was pretty easy as a kid. He would let us tear through the backyard and use part of it for our baseball games. Always kind and caring to the kids in the area when at times probably could have got after us, but he never did. He will be missed. "Rest in peace." Condolences to all his family.

Bob was a great person. I had the privilege of having him as a client at our hair salon for over 40 years. We had many great conversations regarding his young years growing up in Green Bay and his years in the Navy ending at the Pentagon. He and Jean were just fun people to be around.
To his family we will keep you in our prayers at this time of loss. For our old friend Robert we say “Rest In peace” you served your fellow man with Honor and Dignity and left us as a fantastic role model in witch to follow.
