    Prayers and hugs to Bob’s family and grandkids. I knew Bob while working at the Navy Exchange and he was definitely one of the “good guys”. We shared lots of laughs, stories of basketball and golf and had some great times together. He will be missed.

    Was saddened to hear that Bob passed away on March 22. I was a good friend of Bob and his beloved wife, Patsy. There were many happy times spent on vacation with his Niece and her family and Pat’s sister and husband in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We went in October when the mountains were in their glory which Bob loved so much. We stayed in touch even after he moved to Florida. Always, a text on my Birthday, Christmas day and Mother’s day. Bob was a very caring person and I will miss him but he is now with his true love Pat in heaven. My prayers are with his family.
