We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to share our lives with Bob. He was so silly, so sincere, so predictable, so genuinely HIMSELF. I know his family will miss him SO MUCH, but soon enough will be laughing more than crying. Just thinking about all of the joyful moments and funny stories about Bob will simply bring us all back to the reality that we were just plain LUCKY to have known him. Always ready to listen, always willing to help; that was Bob. God decided that Bob (and him family) needed a rest. And God needed a laugh and smile....compliments of Robt J White. My thoughts are of the White family, not just during your time of grief, but for as long as I can remember how often Bob talked about the family he loved...THEN and FOREVER.

Dear Therese, Michelle, Tim, Jeff, Tom and Connie and the rest of the White clan! I was saddened today when I heard about Big Bob's passing. I remember fondly visiting you all at Bear Lake during the camping years, watching Bob and Therese going out with Fern and Lowell during the '70's with Bob and Dad wearing their white shoes and belts and their big lamb chop sideburns back in the day. Dad and Bob always looked like brothers to me and I know my Dad felt that way about Bob. May those same warm memories and many others bring your hearts warmth during these trying days. As Paula said, I am sure Bob and Lowell are sharing fishing stories and taking great pride in both of their families. With warmest regards and prayers for you all! All my love, Keith Baisden

Dear Theresa, Mary M just called me and informed me of Bob's passing, we are so sorry. The first thing that entered my mind was Bob's jokes and smile! Mary and I talked of you both and Marie often. We have many memories of mom and Bob and You and our visits at Trintiy Terrace. We look back at pictures of you all and all the good memories return. I'm not sure if you know Mary's Don passed away Nov 2 so she can relate to your loss. She remembers the times you and Bob offered your home to her when Don was at Appleton Medical. You and your family will be in our prayers and thoughts. I will write to you soon. Please know many people love you and Bob and thank you for the smiles you both brought us. God bless you and your family. Love always Kathy

Dear Mrs. White, Michelle, Tim, Jeff, Tom, Connie and families, I am so sorry to hear about Mr. White, your dad, grandpa and great grandpa passing away. Brings back a flood of memories as our two families grew up together and our 2 dads were like brothers to one another. I always will remember that twinkle in his eye, his laugh and his rubbing of our ear lobes.......May you find comfort in your memories of your dad. Those will never leave you along with the love you have for him that each one of you will carry in your heart each day. Well the 2 big muskie fisherman are once again reunited....The prayers and thoughts of each of us in the Baisden family go out to each one of you. With deepest sympathy....... Paula Baisden Koppelman

Terese, Connie, and all the family, My deepest sympathies go out to you all, and I hope you find comfort in that his suffering is over now and he is at peace with God. The thing I'll always remember most about Bob is his beautiful, sincere smile - always delivered with a mischevious little twinkle in his eyes. He had a way of making everyone around him feel at ease, loved, and special. Truly, Bob was a wonderful man and has left a legacy of love for all of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Diane Wilz.

Michelle and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I hope that all of your positive memories will help you in the difficult days ahead. He was blessed to have you as his daughter Michelle. You went above and beyond in your love and care for your dad and I am sure that he knew and appreciated all that you have done. All of that caregiving gave you a special relationship with him and many memories. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Beth Verkuilen
