These are Bob’s final words:
Goodbye, it’s been great to know you. I’ve had a great life and now it’s time for me to go on to the next great adventure. Thanks for the memories.
All my life I considered myself lucky. I’ve had wonderful parents, loving sisters, brothers-in-law, brother and sister-in-law, great daughters and sons-in-law, grandson and loving cousins and friends. You all made my life a treasure to live and enjoy.  Looking back, I have had very little to complain about.  I enjoyed learning my whole life.  I had a very good job with a great group of fellow employees.  My whole family was always very supportive.  I had the adventures that I desired and I leave this world with no regrets.  Hopefully when people think of me they will smile – that’s all I ask.
I loved you all and you made my life very pleasant.  Thanks.
Bob was preceded in death by his mother, Lucille E. Pflanz, and his father, Henry R. Pflanz.  He leaves behind his sisters, Janice E. Mackey and Carole A. Jennings, and his brother, James L. Pflanz, his daughters, Deborah J. Pflanz and Elizabeth A. White and his grandson, Zachary R. White.
