I remember Bob as a deep and thoughtful person. He didn't waste words and listened more than he talked. We reconnected during the last of couple years on social media and I was able to get a glimpse into his strong faith and the wonderful family life that he enjoyed and so was proud of. I wish to convey my most sincere condolences to his wife, extended family and all who knew him. May the Lord keep him close for all eternity.

Bob, Deb and Me were best of friends for over 45 years. We all stayed in touch and I visited them in Arkansas on two occasions the last visit was this past summer. I knew that visit would be the last time I would see my friend. Bob had no fear. I'm a better man having known Bob. God rest his soul.
