My sweetest memory of Bob was watching him play with his grandchildren. Bob could act out characters and engage with the little children in a way just SO special.

Some of my fondest memories of my Uncle Bob are at Christmas. He would read Twas the Night Before Christmas to us and that’s something I will never forget. Happy memories make warm companions. I would like to believe that my uncle has been reunited with my Auntie Betty, my grandma and grandpa as well as his cousins and beloved pets. Rest well Uncle Bob. (the toy is buggered)

Bob was a terrific man, always happy and laughing! I am so glad my family had the opportunity to know and spend time with him. Our thoughts are with Pat, Bobbie and Denise.

Vicki Baird, and Justin & Jason Stanley-Smith
