    Ive known Bob since he came to work for my dad in 1986. Bob could do anything . Drive any truck and operate any piece of equipment . He could fix anything …except himself i guess. Bob had alot of power in his prime , nobody could whip him , nobody could out drive him or work harder or out drink him. He would do anything for ya if you asked . Im gonna miss him alot . He was my buddy for a long time .

    I was truly blessed to have a true brother from another mother. Bob was such a blessing to my family. Bob was so funny, friendly, loving, had a heart of gold. He loved my cooking and spending holidays with my family. I’m thankful we were able to have this last Thanksgiving together. I’m truly thankful for his friendship and love. I miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and all those who loved him. Forever with the Father. Until we meet again. Your lil Sis
