  1. Dear Susan and family,
    We were so sorry to hear about Bob. Your picture together shows so much happiness. We hope those memories and knowing how much people care about you both will help you through the days ahead.

    With sympathy,
    Kris and Art Ayers

  2. My sincere condolences to all in Bob’s family – especially Susan, Heather and Clarissa. I always enjoyed stopping and talking with Bob after he bought the house behind where I grew up. He made the neighborhood come alive again. I first met Bob while deer hunting out by Clear Lake and remember a few of his antics especially when he accidentally shot at a neighbors deer decoy. I never knew Bob could run that fast. You had a big heart and you touched many. You will be missed my friend but every time I head to the woods I’ll think of you – running by.

  3. Bob was one of those guys you knew you could always count on. I was so happy when he and Susan got together. Beautiful memories made in such a short time. His smile was so contagious whenever you saw him. He and I would have long conversations about “life” when he delivered my school board packets. Susan, in the words of Dr Seuss “Death ends a life; But not a relationship.” RIP my friend.

  4. I am so saddened by the news of Bob’s passing. It is hard to find great neighbors and one that would always be smiling, helpful and kind. My thoughts go to Sue and the family. God bless you during this difficult time.

  5. I have had the good fortune to work with Bob these past 10 years at FEMA.
    Bob was a great man to be around always smiling or joking and always had time to help you.
    He will be greatly missed!
    Katrina, my thoughts are with you. Anything you need honey anything at all just let me know.

  6. We were so saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. He was not only an amazing coworker but a true friend. His kind heart and genuine smile will live on in those who knew him. Our condolences to Susan and family.

  7. Nik / Katrina I have no words. Bob was THEE funniest guy I have met recently. Extremely good handyman!! It was like yesterday I was laughing and joking with him on the shop floor. My sincerest condolences to you and yours on his passing. I know he’s MacGyvering something up there in Heaven that the angels couldn’t get to 🙂 rest in peace Bob! I will look for you when I get there one day and I’ll be sure to bring your toolbelt!!! Randy Hilliker
