Mary, we are so sorry to hear of your husband's passing. After reading his obituary, he sounds like he was an awesome husband, dad and friend. We would have loved to have known him. Please know that we will continue to lift you and your family up in prayer. May you feel our Lord's great comfort and peace in the coming days, weeks and months.

We were fortunate to get to know Bob, Mary and their children more during this past year. We shared fun times talking and playing trivia with them all. Bob was a fantastic source of knowledge on many topics. He was a wonderful person to share time with and we feel blessed to have known him and to have him as a friend. He will be greatly missed.

Mary, my heart breaks for you. I have at least a little idea how you feel having gone through this myself. There are no words to fill the void. Your faith and family will be your greatest comfort and solace. However, remember we all have you in our prayers and send you love and as much comfort as can be. Fortunately, your family and all your wonderful memories will be helpful. Tears help, too. I find I still cry occasionally about losing Bob (my Bob) and its been 23 years or so. It never really goes away. They were such an important and well loved part of our lives. So, cry, laugh, and begin to enjoy life again because Bob would not want it any other way. It does get better, slowly. You are in my prayers and thoughts. I am sorry I cannot afford to make the journey over for the funeral. Just know my thoughts are with you. Karen

Bob was one of the nicest people I met at the Appleton Curling Club. To me, he was a bit quiet, had a warm smile, and was always willing to help out at the club. I thought it was crazy when he would curl in a band shirt and jeans, but that was Bob. He will be dearly missed by all those who were lucky enough to know him.

I have so many memories from Bobby from Curling. My fondest memory of bob was the Green Bay Men's Bonspiel. More like many years of the Spiel. Every year I would drive my Smart Car to the Bonspiel. I would try to hide my car and bob would always find my car and turn it sideways. hahahahaha. Bob had an amazing heart and always very caring.

Mary, Alex and Beth, I am so sorry to hear this news. Bob was just a great guy in all that he did, including welcoming two foreign exchange students (Anastasiya and Iryna) into your family. The four of you were an amazing host family to both of these girls. My prayers are with you as you celebrate Bob's life and who he was. His legacy will live on in all of you and my prayer is that the wonderful memories you have of him and with him will sustain you as you walk through these next days, weeks, months and years with your husband and father. He will be with you always in spirit. Do as he did always - love each other well and all others who come into your lives. Blessings and prayers. Marie

Bob, you were the best son a parent could ask for. In childhood and manhood, your light shined brightly here on earth. I will be looking at the night skies for a new star. I'll love you forever and you will never be forgotten. My heart is broken, but it will hopefully be healed by remembering all the great times we've had over the last 51 years. Love you. Mom
