Bob was my “favorite brother-in-law” since I was 7 yrs old. I grew up
around him all my life and he was a great person who will be missed
terribly. RIP Bob
Mary, you and Bob are so much a part of the lives we had in Bella
Vista. Our special table at Angie's, laughs and good memories. I am so
sorry to hear that he has passed on. I can't imagine the hole he leaves in
so many lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I still have the
red teddy bear with the hearts on he gave me when you two were down
in Fl. Rest in peace dear one.
