To the family:

The first time I met Bob at the repair shop and he treated me as a friend immediately. I was a stranger to Bob, a new person in town. As I watched him over the years of taking my truck in for repair I could see that he was that kind to everyone, new and old. It left an impression on me that I have never forgotten. He was an honest man who did the hard work and he did it with class. He left the world a better place.

Bob was one of the greatest people in Three Oaks. Well known for his honesty and dedication to the community, always generous, always busy but took the time to share a story. Sympathy to his family.
