Bob, I have never really gotten to meet you, but seeing the love and kindness that you possessed through Crissy's eyes, showed me how really special you were. You made Crissy the happiest woman. You've given her so many memories to cherish. Thank you for being there with her, and God Bless you Bob in Heaven.

I am so Blessed that we got to meet Bob and Evan and Nolan 2 yrs ago when they came to Utah to visit. Got to reconnect with Chloe who I hadn't seen since she was 14 months old and Crissy who I will always Love. Bob had such a Peaceful aura that surrounded him. So happy, so witty, so fun. Thank you, Bob, for being such an amazing, supportive, loving Husband and Dad. God Bless you as you rest in Heaven and God Bless your Family as they carry your Legacy you instilled in each of them. Love you all, Grandma Robin

I met Bob in person for the first time 2 summers ago when the family came to visit us in Logan Utah. We were drawn to him right off. What a handsome, kind fellow. So friendly. And he was such a good father and husband. I don’t know that there will ever be a kinder more respectful person as Bob! And for the visit 2 summers ago, I will be forever grateful! May Heavenly Father watch over you and your family Bob!
