Bob was such a kind and generous man. We feel lucky to have known him Please accept our deepest condolences.
Dave & Sharon Curson
Our hearts ache at the news about Bob. Our sincere condolences go out to all of those that loved him and will miss him. A true friend and a man that not only passionately held principles and standards higher than most, but was willing to risk it all fighting for those principles. Sharon said it best - he could have fought through and won the medical issues that he faced but first losing his Mom and then his beloved Ann was more than he could take. Bob lives on in our hearts and minds.
A great man in so many ways who will truly be missed. While I'm incredibly saddened to hear the news, I'm thankful Bob is in a better place. He will be missed.
