I can remember as a kid eating chips and drinking a can of Pepsi while checking on wells with you. Sometimes you let me climb up the well and throw a few pebbles of gravel into the black oil as you would laugh and chuckle. Memories are all we have left but they are what keep you alive. You loved your job, family, god, and life and although we miss you we know you are looking down on all of us with that smile and that unforgettable laugh. Rest easy and until we meet again.

You have our deepest sympathy. We always enjoyed talking to Bob when he stopped in for fruit. He always had interesting news about the community. Bob had a very likable personality and liked his peaches a little green.

Grandpa you are with the Lord now and in peace. We will miss you. I will remember you as you were when you were younger 4-wheeling through the fields to check on oil rigs. Farming for fun and planting way too many tomatoes and potatoes. You would sometimes tell stories of your youth and I would hang on every word to get a glimpse of your younger self. I love you grandpa and I know you are in a better place. Cassie

While our hearts are heavy that you are no longer here on this earth with us, we rejoice in knowing that you are finally HOME. How beautiful it must be to be there with Jesus. What joy to be in his presence. And how miraculous to no longer be bound by disease. Grandpa, we love you. We will miss you. But we are rejoicing in the truth of knowing you are where you are meant to be. We look forward to the day we see you again and meet our Lord. ❤️

I will miss you, Grandpa Bob. I am cherishing all the happy memories I have of you, and I am so grateful for those memories. I made a donation in your memory to Alzheimer’s Association, in hopes that in the future there will be a cure for Dementia and Alzheimer’s. I thank God that you are at peace and rest at His side, but you will be missed greatly. 💜
