People who met Bob were lucky to do so....he never had a bad word for anyone and encouraged people to follow his lead ( and do their best). Was fortunate to have two caring/compassionate Daughters ( and spouses) and long-time friend, Carole.
His Grandchildren were a source of enjoyment for him. May he enjoy 'peace at last'.

Our sincere condolences to the family. Bob was a fun loving man and we enjoyed his company on the golf course and at social occasions.
