He is survived by his son, Matthew Buchholz (and Virginia Wendt); sister, Bonnie Kellogg and husband Jim, along with nieces, Debbie Webster (and Tom Burleigh), Diane Collins and Tiffani Miller and husband Marc as well as their children.

Bob made such a difference in my life and the lives of my students. His support and expertise made my classroom a much richer experience for my students, and his smile, his sense of humor and his generosity helped me find the joy of life that he always maintained. He will be missed.

Bob was the most kind and wonderful person I was lucky to have in my life. He always made me smile and had such a positive outlook on life. As well a great sense of humor. I enjoyed talking to him about almost everything especially his trips. I will miss him dearly. He will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

I just heard of Bob´s passing and I am deeply saddened. It seems like I just spoke to him yesterday. We used to bowl on the same team years ago and have kept in touch through social media. He was such a nice man and so much fun to be around. My condolences to his family.

Dear Family, I am deeply saddened to hear of dear Bob's passing. I worked with him for many years at Sunnyside, and cherished our time together. I always looked forward to his curiosity, positiveness and stories of his travels when visiting his shop and seamless professionalism during events for the students. We are all better for having known him. I know your loss is dear, and please take comfort that he remains with us in you.
