My daughter and I had the pleasure of meeting Bob at sports events or the fabulous Kimball pool parties where he rarely got a word in with all the girl chatter yet he was always smiling and enjoying the time with family and friends. Our love 💕 and prayers are with you!

Peggy, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, Bob. I didn't know him well but I worked with you in the late 60's at the phone company. My husband and I met you at the Ground Round a few years ago. I will keep you in my prayers. RIP Bob you are now in good hands.

Peggy and family: We are deeply saddened by the news of Robert's death. You and your family will be in our prayers. He was one of a kind, easy going, a hard worker and always had a good word for everyone he met. Although we didn't see much of each other as time passed, we could pick up a conversation as though we just spoke yesterday. I miss him.
