Bob was an amazing and wonderful man. He had such a big heart and was always there to support anyone who needed it. He treated each of us like members of his own family. We will truly miss his entertaining stories, hearty laugh, deep spirit and the zest he had for life. Our neighborhood and lives will feel a void without Bob. Thunder and Skye will miss their visits with Uncle Bobby during their walks. We are always here to support you Pam. May your memories of Bobby and the love of family and friends comfort you during this difficult time.
With love and friendship,
Kerry, David, Griffin, Gannon, Thunder and Skye
