i would like to offer my most heart felt sympathy on behalf of myself and my coworkers from Air Wisconsin. The former workers of Air Wisconsin just had a reunion and Bob was a topic for us night shift workers. We would call him before his shift ended at Marks the Spot, now spectators, and he would stay overnight at the bar just to open for us in the morning. He definitely went out of his way to accommodate us and was always entertaining even though he only had a few hours of sleep. I'm sure I speak for everyone in wishing you the Seifert family our deepest condolences

JoAnn and Family - Judy and I are so very sorry to hear about Bob. He was one of a kind. We became friends when we were bartenders at Ragun’s back in the early 80’s. I’m so glad that the guys and I made it up to see him at Legends last summer on the bikes. Always had a joke or a good story to tell. We’ll miss him greatly.

Bob, from the first time meeting you as Rob's and my twin son's baseball coach you were a standup man!! And what a coach you were....all the boys on the team loved you and thought you were the absolute best! And still do to this very day!! As a non-drinker, I would come to The Corner Bar in Appleton just to see you and enjoy your company and you introduced me to my future and present husband. For that we will always be thankful! And to all of your customers and friends, the only reason most of us frequented the bars where you worked was because of you and your charm, wit, generosity and charisma. We will miss you but look forward to seeing you on the other side. Gone but not ever forgotten.....
