Travis and Tiffany (and families): I'm so sorry for your loss. Bob was a good man, the kind of guy who was always ready with a joke, someone to share a few good laughs with. My condolences to you all. I wish we could be back for his memorial, but you'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

I was so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Unfortunately, I will be out of town the next few days and unable to attend the ceremony. Ir-regardless, he was "one of a kind". He always took time to come over and talk with me. Always had an opinion (even though I didn't always agree with it!!). I played softball with him and Umpired with him as well and always respected him. A beautiful person who will be missed...
