Bob was one of the most caring and loving people I have ever known. I will always be grateful for the love he showed my entire family but most of all my Mom, Kay. He was truly a knight in shining armor and made my Mom so incredibly happy. The love you two shared was beautiful. I know you missed her so much and although I’m sad you have left us, I am comforted in knowing that you’re dancing with your forever love in Heaven.
Love, Christine

We met Bob 3.5 years ago when we moved to Hawks Nest Road. Bob was the first neighbor to come and welcome us into the neighborhood. He always stopped by, waved or made time to chat with us and let us know we were brightening up his neighborhood. He was a kind and helpful neighbor! Many times we'd look outside and could see his twinkling Christmas Trees in the window! He loved helping anyone he could and gave it his all. Bob will be missed and we hope he is at peace and dancing away in heaven with his beloved wife Kay!
