Bob was a some man. Everytime I think of one thing to write, two more come to mind. He taught me some things about faith that I didn't want to learn and showed me so things I will never forget. Like the aurora we saw at 2am along the interstate while he was driving with the lights off. Like that one aurora, I know I'll never know anyone like Bob again. Thank you for all of the memories.

I had a time in my life when circumstances so blessed me that I was able to be the beneficiary of Bob's great generosity and kindness. I know that I was very lucky to benefit from the rare and unforgettable friendship he gave so freely. It really helped me in my life. Having had that experience, condolences seem to be an inadequate gesture to offer to those who were blessed with his presence over a long time, but now have to go on without him. But condolences are are all that can be offered at this time. May your memories be of some comfort to you in the midst of this hardship and loss.

Karen, Matt, Rachel, and Becca - I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the honor of working with Bob on several occasions over the past 8 years at Humana. I always knew him to be straight forward, honest, and fair. Bob had a unique way of making his point clear and I am a better person for having known him.

Kim, Matt, Rachel and Becca, our prayers are with you during this difficult time. Bob was a hard worker and great teacher and never to busy to answer questions. Most important; Bob showed his faith to all by his actions, he walked the walk. Bob always spoke of love when he talked about his family. He was a good man. God is good.

Karen, Matt, Rachel and Becca, I am so very sorry for you loss. I had the pleasure of sitting next to Bob at Humana and he had so much love and pride for all of you! I will never forget his stories of his preperations for your big camping trip and him sewing the sleeping bags, only to have you all end up in a hotel. I'm proud to have called Bob a friend and I know you all have an angel watching over you in Heaven.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Bob was a true friend and mentor to me, while working together at Humana. Bob was a quiet guy at work, but had a huge heart, and was willing to help out whenever he could. My prayers are with his family in their time of sorrow.
