One day my husband said he was going to see Bob at Ridgeview to help him put his collapsible kayak together. I couldn't believe it, but he said that Bob wanted something easier to handle so he bought this kayak. He loved the outdoors as much as he loved his family and friends. I'm grateful for having known Marie and Bob. RIP.

As a young couple buying a house, we were blessed to buy the house next to Bob and Marie. They were an amazing example of love and faith. We only had to walk next door to receive amazing advice and help with anything we needed. Our daughters will forever miss Grandpa Bob, but we are rejoicing that he and Grandma Marie are reunited in Heaven. Our condolences to Bob’s family.
Bill and Julie Ryno left a message on February 6, 2019:
Bob and Marie used to sit behind us at St. Bernard every Sunday. They were one of the couples we looked to as examples of a sacramental marriage. While we grieve their loss, we are sure that they are reunited in heaven. We are so sorry for your loss. Blessings to you all.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Since I don't leave the house very often, my remembrance of Bob will have to be here! I loved having Bob and Marie for neighbors on Riverdale and treasure all the years I was around them. My thoughts go out to all his children, grand-children and great grandchildren,

Our thoughts, prayers and condolences are sent to the Bob Ferron family with deepest sympathy. I have many fond memories of working with Uncle Bob at Ferron's Clothing while growing up. Rest in peace, Bob.

Our memories of Bob go back to the clothing store, of course. But memories of Bob & Marie at St. Bernard are from 50 plus years. May all your family memories bring a smile to your face. God bless you all! Now Bob is back with his Marie! Smiling and happy!
Tom left a message on February 5, 2019:
A great Dad, wonderful friend to many. You will always be remembered for the time you took for us, Grandkids and great Grandkids. You taught us to love the outdoors. By now you are reunited in heaven with our dear Mom. What a blessing is was to have you for 66 years in my life.
Denny Ferron left a message on February 5, 2019:
I can only ditto what my siblings have already said. Dad lived a complete and faith-filled life that influenced a lot of people. Like mom, he will be dearly missed but never, ever forgotten. Now they are reunited and both resting peacefully.
Dave Ferron left a message on February 5, 2019:
Dad,
We love you. You were a great father, dad, grandfather and great grandfather. Your love and passion for life has been passed onto the next three generations of family. By example, you taught us more than we will ever know. Please give Mom a hug from us. May you rest in peace with the Lord, our God.
Linda Probst left a message on February 5, 2019:
Thoughts and prayers to Mr. Ferron's family. We knew Marie from working at Valley Orthopedic and met Bob at a estate planning seminar a year before Marie passed. We sat together and enjoyed our "free" meal and left. Marie was the very best receptionist around. My husband formerly purchased his suits and dress shirts from Ferron's. Now Marie and Bob are together again enjoying great health being back together. Blessings
Mark and Mary Collar left a message on February 5, 2019:
Tom. Your father leaves an incredible legacy. Looking at his life story and progeny, it's quite obvious that he was special. I know how I felt when I lost my dad, all too early. While his passing is painful you are blessed to have the joy of his presence all of these years. I hope you have fun celebrating his life in the days ahead.
Bob Ferron left a message on February 5, 2019:
Dad. We miss you and love you and really enjoyed the family you and Mom created and nurtured. Your love for us kids, your grandkids and great grand kids was apparenthroughout your life. You enjoyed the outdoors and taught us to love and respect nature. Enjoy your renunion with Mom and Rest In Peace.
Nan Erdahl left a message on February 5, 2019:
My thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with the Ferron family. I met Bob in 2010 when my mother moved into his building at Ridgeview Highlands. He was the sweetest man! Mom lived there for 6 years, so I saw Bob often. He always asked how I was and how Mom was doing. I am very sorry for your loss. He was obviously a wonderful father, grandfather and great-grandfather, full of love and great faith. My prayers also go up for Emma and her family.
Jimmy left a message on February 4, 2019:
You are already greatly missed Dad. Rest In Peace with Mom, eternally in her and God’s arms.
