Uncle Bob was always a little larger than life in my mind. When around him, even when I was young, I had the impression he was aware of things that most weren't and, having heard Harry's eulogy, I now understand why. He projected a sense of security, knowing the unknown. He gave without wanting in return. He always had that twinkle in his eye. I knew him...but wish I had known him better. He left one heck of a legacy.

I never met Grandpa but one thing I have always known about him: He was/is adored by his grandchildren...and that is a Loving Legacy all its own. Our hearts and prayers are with you at this time. We love you and feel we have indeed known Grandpa as we have been so tenderly loved by each one of you Swensons! OX, Dawn, Kevin, and Isabella Montgomery

What a wonderful man. He and Doris have raised eight great kids that are successful, loving people with good families. That is quite a legacy. I'm so happy that my sister married into his family.
Our prayers are with you all.
