City Bob was such a great guy. I will always remember all the fun times we had at our trailers at Portage lake. I remember the camp fires, the boat rides, the practical jokes he pulled and all the BBQ's we had. I truly enjoyed his friendship. He left us way too soon. He will be missed by all of us.
Dear Karen: I am very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I will always remember him as a very energetic and out-going person when we worked together at C.L. Gransden. Not knowing what happened to him, I only hope that he did not have to suffer an illness. Linda and I wish to extend our condolences and I will say a little prayer for Bob tonight that he is in a better place.
He was a great guy with a huge enthusiasm for life and everyone he knew. He will be missed.
I only knew Bob for a short time at Ghuring, But when he walked into the room he got everybody's attention. He was always quick with a joke, and to offer some free advice. You will be missed greatly.
Bob was a friend to have out at the lake. I'll always thank him for getting rid of that snake in the woodpile for me. Unfortunately, you didn't appreciate him bringing him home to you. He will be greatly missed.
my heart goes out to, Karen. Love your godmother, Virginia
I am so sorry for your losss, Bob was so young. I lost Warran almost 2 years ago, but he had been sick for years. All of you are remember fondly at the lake. m I will keep your family in my prayers. Take comfort in knowing he is now with God.
