What a wonderful man Bob was...he taught me about the outdoors in ways I would never have otherwise come to appreciate. He had an infectious smile and laugh. He enjoyed good food and helping others. He had a mild manner and a loving heart! He will be deeply missed!

Beverly, your Bob was a special man. When ever we spoke of him it was always Bob and Beverly. It was never just Bob or Beverly. You should be very proud of the 63 years you were together. Bob will be missed by a lot of people.
