  7. My condolences to the family. I met Bob about 17 years ago. As General Contractors, we worked together on a few projects and became friends. It has probably been a year and a half since I spoke with Bob, maybe longer, but I thought of him often.

    Bob is a good man. I enjoyed our times together and our conversations. There’s about a 20 year age difference between the two of us, but we connected on many levels.

    I respected Bob very much. He talked about Mary and the boys and was so proud of his family. He was proud of his son’s accomplishments as well as the men they had become. We had several conversation about the religious retreat he attended with his son and what a special time that was.

    Again, I am sorry for your loss. I pray that God comforts your family and strengthens you during this difficult time.

  8. Mary and family, I am very sorry for your loss. Although many years have gone by, I remember Bob’s goodness. May your memories sustain you. Sincerely, Daniel Dowd

  9. To the Mary and Family,
    Our deepest sympathies on your loss. Knowing and working with Bob at Goodyear was an honor and privilege. Knowing your family in Danville and the memories we shared over the past 40+ years will keep Bob alive in our hearts forever.

  10. Dear Mary, Mike and all the Family,
    So sorry for the loss of your beloved husband and father!
    My prayers and deepest sympathy to all! Love, Frances and family

  11. Bob built a nice home for my wife, Brenda and I. He was nice to work with. He was a friend and our sympathies go out to his family.
