We would like to thank everyone who has shown our family such compassion, kindness, and love over the last few days. Dad is sorely missed, and his absence is painful as our family gathers to celebrate his life. We miss the twinkle in his smiling eyes, his love of a good laugh, and the deep affection he had for the family he and Mom enjoyed so dearly. Thank you all for your continuing love and support.

Our sympathy goes out to Phyllis, Todd, Rob, and the rest of the family. Bob was such an asset to our Mid Vallee Golf Course family. Words can't express how saddened we are over the loss of such a great customer and friend. There will definitely be a void in our Monday & Tuesday Senior Leagues.

Rob Freeman left a message on February 7, 2015:

Dad , I never imagined this day happening for a long, long time. You are missed more then you will ever know. I love you so much and you meant the world to me. You and I had such great memories together that I will cherish forever Love you Dad.

Matthew Paul Johnson left a message on February 7, 2015:

I'm heartbroken for my Aunt Phyllis, Cousins Todd and Rob, their
families and our extended family over the loss of my Uncle Bob. It is
hard to put into words all of the things Uncle Bob meant to us. The
biggest thing I can mention about his relationship with me personally is he accepted me for who I am. I learned
about my Uncle Bob by doing things with him. He is irreplaceable. My
Uncle Bob and Aunt Phyllis were incredible partners. I ask God's
Blessing on my relatives. I am blessed to have had Uncle Bob in my life. There just aren't enough words. I love you Uncle Bob and our
whole family is going to miss you dearly.
