Bob loved his family more than words can express. He was warm, kind and loyal towards everyone. If you met him, you would never forget him. He was full of energy and life and the hardest worker we ever knew. He enjoyed playing his guitar and singing with the guys in the band. Most of all, he loved being a Pop-Pop to his 6 grandchildren and spending time with the family. He is living in heaven now with friends and family that entered God's Kingdom before him. We look forward to the day we are reunited with him in heaven. We love him dearly and will forever miss him.
