Bob was a most wonderful person. Someone I always enjoyed seeing, no matter where or what the occasion. Words cannot express what a great guy...he will be missed. May our Lord envelop you all with His grace. May He lessen your grief and sorrow during this difficult time of life. God has most certainly welcomed Bob on the golden streets of Heaven and introduced him to the wealth of blessings he so justly earned. Rejoice and rest assured Bob has been reunited with his Heavenly family. Revel in the splendid memories Bob has given to everyone he met. May God be with you all.

I am sorry to hear of Bob's passing.   He was always a good neighbor.  He helped me by moving snow in my driveway even before we moved.  I didn't even have to ask.  I was traveling from upper Arlington each day when I was building our home and would have been snowed in or out.  He came down and cleared my driveway. He has gone to a better place.  As we know this us the beginning of something great.   George will show him the ropes.  God bless.
