What a blessing it was to have had him in all of our lives. I am so thankful for the time he had with our Aunt Sally as I couldn’t possibly wish for a better companion. He will be sorely missed by us all. He was truly unique in his abundance of care and compassion for others and will be remembered for both his humor and soothing personality that made every one around him feel comfortable, accepted and at peace. His presence in our lives was truly the Lords work and gift to us all. I am comforted to know he’ll be there waiting for us. Bob you are the real deal. We love you and pray for you and may God bless you and keep you in the palm of his hand until our joyful reunion. Much love - Ian, Erin, Megan, Michelle, Isabella and Paris.

Bob was an amazing volunteer for Easterseals Crossroads employment division. Over a period of six years, Bob helped many individuals with disabilities with their job searches. He was kind and encouraging to each person with whom he worked, and his dedication and work ethic was a model for us all. We were truly blessed to have him on our team, and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with him and to know him personally.
