Dear Larry and family,
I have fond and fun memories of Bob in our much younger years. He was a very thoughtful and kind friend. He was the only one that had a car and he would give us all a ride to high school. I did visit him once at the Summit and he was as jovial as ever.
He was the kind of guy you never forget.

Carol, Sheri and families- I have fond memories of Bob. He was a happy guy, always smiling or cracking a joke. I never saw him in a bad mood. He was an all around good guy, good father, storyteller, Harley man and my brother-in-law. God bless him!
