    Denise and Whitney, Very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I remember years ago he came and helped me with a tractor that was giving me fits. Very knowledgeable mechanic. Really nice guy and I feel guilty for not seeing him other than at school functions. I am sure you will miss him a lot.

    Will miss teasing my favorite nephew about our ages and talking about our old school days and dairy farming. Had many good conversations and laughs. Bob was a good man and will be missed by many, especially his loving family. God speed Bob may you RIP along with those gone before us until we all meet again.
