I’m so very sorry to hear about Bobby… Him and your family were the best neighbors we could ever have asked for! Even though he was a little older he was always in the thick of it with us. Lots of good times back in the days! Praying for you all during this difficult time. RIP Bobby. xo
So sorry for the loss of a good man. I worked with Bob at Frito Lay, bowled with him and golfed with him. He loved life and people. He will be missed.
Bob , I hope you REST IN PEASE in the arms of God . Hope you enjoyed your life’s journey 🙏
I met Bob over 20 years ago while working for H&R Block. Back then, he scared me with his gruff and grouchy manner. Getting to know him over the years has been such a joy for me. When we would comes to the office and there would be a new delivery of Fritos snacks, everyone would be claiming their favorite, or on long Saturdays, when he would send out for pizza at lunch. And Bob had some of the most loyal clients, every year they would call and say, “Nora, when is Bob available for me this year?” God bless you, Bob, you will be missed. Prayers and love to Wendy and your family.
Dad set the bar high. Meet it or beat it.
Our sincere condolences.
Bob was a good friend and golf partner for many years. Bob was an honest man and always let you know what was on his mind. He was a fixture at Chili Country Club for decades. We miss Bob’s constant presence at the golf course and it won’t be the same without him. Prayers to the family for a man lost way to soon!
