  1. Bob and I attended high school together. The he, my two brothers and Father worked together for a couple of years. Bob was just an all around decent guy that will be missed.

    So sorry to hear about the passing of Bob, he was always so fun to be around, sang all the time and was just a joy. He’s with Aunt Doris and grandma Hoy now and she was probably waiting to throw a cup of water on him. She really enjoyed messing with him. I didn’t get to see him much but I loved him to pieces. May he Rest In Peace. This is not Good-bye this is I will see you again one day.
