Ruth and I have been friends for many years. Spent several nights at Ruth's and got to know her dad, Bob.. He and Marcella were wonderful people.

One of my favorite memories of my great grandpa was when we’d go fishing in Minnesota. He was always a jokester and made sure everyone was laughing by the end of a conversation! And his fried fish made summers so worth the heat!

Bob was my second Dad growing up, Linda and I spent many hours going from the Elevator in Tefft to my Dad's garage I think to see where we got the most candy. He has a beautiful family and many friends that will miss him, he will be remembered with love. My thoughts and prayers to all his family.

I did not know Bob personally but know his beautiful daughter, Nancy. I feel as though I know him through the stories Nancy cheated with me. He lived a long and blessed life. Amen!

I do not have any personal memories of Bob as I never met him. But I am friends with his beautiful daughter Nancy and feel as though I know him through the many times she has shared stories of him with me.
Bob lived a long, blessed life. Amen!
