Friends, you hope to be with through the years ... not always meant to be. We knew about Bob, me (Peter) from his early morning computing at Flake with our urgent questions and me (Judi) from earlier years in the auto business. They steadied us with a check-in when our rv folded up last fall with a reassuring moment with friends. Judi and Peter High ground to higher ground.

I've known Bob for over forty years and was deeply saddened with his passing. We shared our many Vietnam experiences and loved his corny sense of humor. If there is ever a Poster Boy for the Marine Corps it'd have Bob's picture on it. Rest in Peace my Brother and Semper Fi.
Tom and Lori Gray left a message on November 11, 2021:
Loved talking to Bob almost every day down at the club. He was one of these guys that help if you asked him no matter what. Also, I thank hoim for his service in the marines. May God bless his family.
Al Perry left a message on November 10, 2021:
I only met & knew Bob for about a year. He was a HOOT. By his mannerisms, one day I looked at him and said: You remind me of Archy Bunker! He looked back at me "in surprise" and said: No one ever told me that! But indeed he was a very kind version of Archy.....in my opinion.

He will be greatly missed
Kathy Kettner left a message on November 10, 2021:
It was my honor knowing you Bob. We met many, many moons ago and although I have not been able to see you in recent years, as much as i would like, but a lot of love for you. Thank you for making Marie fulfill her dreams of traveling and just loving one another. You will truly be missed and you are gone to soon. Give love to all those before you, especially John and Larry.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
David Elliott left a message on November 10, 2021:
Bob you were loved by everyone and will be very much missed! There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, their light remains. Your light will shine on brightly in our hearts and memories. May you rest in peace for eternity. My sincerest condolences to the entire family.
