Bob was a truly amazing man; kind hearted, supportive, inclusive. He put his family first always. He took in a slightly lost English family and made them part of his family. He will always be in our hearts. Our thoughts are with his family, love to all xoxoxo

Bob will be so missed by Roy and I. He was a great brother-in-law. We enjoyed vacations with him in his favorite place, Aruba. Bob was always there to give me advice when needed and always willing to help me with computer questions. Playing cards with him and Linda was a fun past time. May he Rest in Peace for eternity.

Bob was a very dear friend to me and my deceased husband for the past several years. I will miss talking with him as he always had good advice. May he rest in peace.

I didn't know Bob personally but I certainly know his wife, Linda. We grew up together in North Valley Stream and many years have passed. I extend to all the family my sincere, loving and heartfelt condolences. It is a loss and I trust you know I am sending you prayers and positive vibes to help all of you get through this loss. Bob, as I understand, was a loving and wonderful human being and I will cast my ballot that he was probably Number One on entering into that Eternal Peace with open arms by our Lord. Love you. xo

Our deepest sympathy to Linda and your family. This is such a shock. We were just out to dinner a couple evenings ago in Bisbee and talking about Bob growing up there. It was a pleasure working with him on Reserve HOA boards throughout our 20+ years in the neighborhood. We considered the two of you good neighbors. Again, we are so sorry for your loss.

Dear Curtis and Troy, I have just learned from Margie and Rigo of your father's untimely death. May God comfort you in these coming days. The memories you share will now become even more special to you and your children. Your Grandfather Marion would have desired also that you sense God's love and comfort.
