I had a temp assignment at ASEC Burlington in 1987/1988 and fondly remember Bob. He was one of the people I did typing for. He was a pleasure to work with and talk to. He sincerely told me how much he appreciated my efforts. Bob was a kind and classy gentleman. I wish everyone I have worked with treated others the way Bob did. May he rest in peace!

Grampa, seeing that your obituary is already on the “second page” just really puts into perspective how sad it is that life must go on without you. You were truly a gentleman and a solid grandfather- the kind everyone wishes they had. I was lucky enough to have you as mine. I miss you so much it hurts. But I’ll do whatever I can to make you proud. Love you always, Kayla.

My dad was was beloved by all who knew him . As a dad he always had a huge smile & an abundance of praise & pride when it came to all of us who lovingly called him dad, Grampa , Bob, Bobby ! He had a knack for telling his stories (several times) as most of us could recite word for word . What made my dad unique was his amazing gift of listening as well. He always put his family first & instilled his values of “it always boils down to people “. , helping others & that “right is right & wrong is nobody”. I will miss our times together yet you are alive in my heart ♥️
Love Patti
