Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • My heartfelt condolences go out to Lynda and the family. I know how much friends and family meant to Bob. He had a big heart and could always be relied upon when a helping hand was needed. He spoke his mind and there was nothing phoney about him… I respected that. Deep down a good man. - Posted by: lois isfjord ( inlaw ) on: Sep 14, 2023

  • My heartfelt sympathy to you Lynda, Diane, Dawn, Michael, Steven and your spouses and families. Bob was a truly lovely man who loved you all so very much. I miss him terribly. - Posted by: Elaine Anderson (friend) on: Sep 11, 2023

  • Bob was a kind, generous and compassionate person. He loved life, his family, his friends and anyone he met on the street. He helped anyone who needed it and was happy doing so. He was an "old soul" who learned many of life's lessons through overcoming adversities and shared these wisdoms with everyone. Bob always had an opinion and was never afraid to share his ideas with all. He was our 'Go-To Guy' if you needed advice as he just happened to always have the answer. Sometimes he had to think about the question for a few days, but he always came back to you with a solid plan which would fix all problems. Bob loved to laugh at himself and others as he had such a fun and happy outlook on life. He was a great teacher to his children because he wanted to guide them through life to help them know how to be good, upstanding people in their future lives. Sometimes this would not be received well, but he tried his best to keep his children strong and kind like he was. Bob was a very good friend to many and we will miss him terribly. Rest in peace my dear friend. xo - Posted by: Elaine Anderson (Friend) on: Sep 11, 2023

  • My deepest condolences Linda, Dawn, Michael and Steven and your families. Bob had a big heart and would help anyone in need. For many years he helped me with yard work when I had a house and fixed my car when I had one on more than one occasion. He will always hold a special place in my heart. - Posted by: Gail Hill (Friend) on: Sep 09, 2023
