    Love to Deana and the Allsman family. Lost my Dad almost exactly a year ago to Alzheimer’s and know how bittersweet this time is. Wishing you peace and sweet memories.

    My sincere condolences go out to the entire family!
    I was blessed to have had Bob as my boss and my mentor for over eighteen years at SEMCO. He was a man of great integrity, character, and honor! He set an example for us to follow in both his professional and private life. I am forever grateful to him for his guidance and leadership! I have many fond memories of him. I will miss his presence. I know that he is captaining a ship for our Lord, in heaven.

    My thoughts turn to fond memories of Bob. He was a very good leader and he made it a point to know everyone that he worked with at SEMCO. He will be missed by so many. My prayers are with you during this difficult time but with loss there is joy knowing that Bob is now giving those glorious speeches in Heaven. God Bless you.

    My thoughts and prayers for Bob’s family. Bob was the president at SEMCO when I first started working there. He was a true leader and I know he is now soaring with the angels. GOD BLESS !!

    Dear Carol, I was so heartbroken to see the Obituary for Bob in the paper. You may not remember our names but you will remember that we were your neighbours to the North when you lived on Hulen Drive. It was such a pleasure to live next door to both of you, you couldn’t have been more wonderful neighbours and we were sad when you left and we still miss you. We used to have such interesting conversations with both of you. Getting older is a challenge for everyone, we understand as we are now both in our 70’s. I always remember when Bob had his shoulder surgery. He researched it so carefully to make the right decision. After the surgery he faithfully did his exercises. One day he announced that the shoulder that had surgery, and he was doing the Physical Therapy for, was now stronger than his uninjured shoulder. Only a most honest person would have ever shared such information. We both laughed and appreciated the benefit of exercise. If you have a Memorial Service that the pubic can attend, we will look forward to seeing you there. A saying that gives me comfort when loss occurs is from Tagore- Death is not the extinguishing of the light but the blowing out of the candle because the dawn has come. Blessings to you and the family. Fondly, Bev & Buzz Keiper
