    Patty, Rachel, Collette, Joan and family.
    Bob was a unique individual. He cherished his family, enjoyed times with friends, and found time for those that needed him. His passing will leave a horrendous void in a lot of lives. Whether you called him Husband, Father, Son, Brother of good friend, we were are very fortunate to have Bob in our lives. His smile was infectious and his heart was huge.
