I had the honor of knowing Bob and playing in a band with him beginning when we were in high school. We played together a few times after that. I have nothing but fond memories of Bob. He was a kind soul and warm person.

Deanna Stong Posted at 07:55pm

Thank you so much Art. He always had good things to say about you and enjoyed playing in the band with you guys. He so enjoyed that.

Deanna & Tanner, Bob was one of my favorites! Funny and a delight to care for. His life was too short. But I will remember his spirit always.
