I remember all of the life lessons you had tought me. You were not only my grandpa, but you were also my father and best friend. You tought me how to drive a boat, how to make popcorn, and how to work for things you and others need. I’ll never forget Barhead A&W trips and the bunch of sweets along the way.

I will forever love you and miss you. I can’t wait till I have kids and tell them the stories you told me.

I love you grandpa. Rest easy. :two_hearts:

So wish I could be there today. But I am there in my heart and memories. For me, the song is “The Boys in the Bright White Sport Car”! Thinking of my childhood (to teenage to not so responsible adult at times) Putz. I am sad but smile each time one of those memories arise. B (Brenda Wasylik)

My earliest memory of Bobby is his hot yellow car (Firebird) I think. And when he would let everyone back home in Swan River know he was back by making loops down main street and fifth avenue. Followed closely by his brother Oscar in his hot navy blue (Trans am I think.). We used to sing Trooper’s “The boys are back in town”. Good times! RIP Bobby hope they have a hot car for you in Heaven.

We have so many memories of Bob and his family but going for two and a juice will always be our special thing to do. The nice thing was that Robert was nice enough to push me home in a grocery cart. He wasn’t just our family, he was our friend. I will always miss him. Love you Bob

Many Years ago I had the pleasure of going into the delivery room with Diane and Bob for the delivery of Scott . I still laugh when I think of the look on Bob’s face when he asked Diane looking into her eyes and said “We Did Good ” ? And that’s when I think He had to sit down really quick.
