    Bob was such a good guy. We were deeply saddened & shocked to hear of his passing. We spent many hours with him when his daughter, Debbie was giving birth to Ryan while JoAnne was with Debbie during her labor. He made us feel like we’ve known him all our lives. We couldn’t have asked for a better father-in-law for our son, Joe. We feel very privileged to have known him and he will be sadly missed. Family events won’t be the same without Bob. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to JoAnne and her children. May God give you all the strength to get through this tough time. All Our Love – Frank & Cheryl
