  1. I first met “Hut” in the ninth grade at Fairview Junior High. He was a kid from St. Rose and I was from Corpus Christi. Despite the elementary school rivalry, Hut and I became friends that lasted through high school and into our college years. I speak for many who will fondly remember Bob and the fun times we had in his van cruising Roseville or heading up to the North Shore. Bob was inclusive to all and everyone enjoyed the many adventures he would organize.To Cathy and his children, my deepest sympathies and condolences. To the Heutmaker family, I am very sorry for the loss of your son and brother and thank you for the kindnes you gave to me and my brothers as we stumbled through our adolescent years. I will always remember Bob’s smile and his energy and enthusiasm. I am grateful I was able to call him my friend during those years in high school. I think his brother Steve said it the best to me this week, “somewhere there is a 1967 blue Ford Econoline van driving up the North Shore of Heavan.” Take care and know you are in my family’s thoughts and prayers.

  2. Bob was one of the nicest most affable men on the planet. Always always always a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face! We coached several AYSO teams together, and had a ball. I loved him, all the girls we coached loved him, all the parents of the girls loved him. He was the ultimate cheerleader and made every practice, every game, every everything more fun. I can’t help but smile when I think of all the time we spent on the sidelines coaching and cheering our teams, win, lose, or draw. i was so quiet on the sideline, he would be the voice of the team, shouting out directions to our players ~ sometimes, he would yell, “Defense, GET BACK!” and I would look at him and say, “No! No! Defense UP!” and he would smile, chuckle and yell twice as loud, “DEFENSE UP!” 🙂 Every other year Bob and I would coach with Wayne B. (as Molly & Danny were a year apart and would switch age groups.) Wayne was old school and a little more reserved than Bob. After one particularly hard fought win, I remember Bob looking at me, bursting at the seams and said, “I gotta do it!” and went over and gave Wayne a HUGE bear hug (Wayne is not a bear hug kinda guy) it was so cute. Wayne obviously a little uncomfortable, and Bob not being able to contain his enthusiasm, happiness and love of everyone and everything. I cannot think of Bob without a smile on my face. My love to Molly, Cathy, and the whole Heutmaker Family <3

  3. Dean Aamodt, Roseville MN.
    I first met Bob in 9th grade at Fairview Jr. High he was the new kid that came over from St. Rose where the tough guys went to school. However I soon found out that wasn’t Bob. He was just about the most friendly likeable person I have ever met. Our friendship grew from there and in HS at Alex Ramsey we became good friends. I will never forget his smile and laugh. It seemed like whatever we were doing driving around Roseville in the blue van just listening to music and talking about girls, going to the State Fair, or camping in Bayfield Wisc or up the North Shore all we did was laugh and have a good time. Time moves on and after spending alots of time together in Duluth while Bob worked a Grandma’s resturant we both married and went are seperate ways but are friendship was deep and long lasting and whenever we did get together it was just like we saw each other just the day before. To his wife and kids you have my my deepest sympathies on your loss and I wish I could say something to easy your pain. Just know that Bob was loved by all back here in Roseville. I still see many of Bob’s friends from the old days Paul Capistrant, Tom Lux and many others and ever time we sit around a camp fire and tell stores about the old days you can be sure that Bob and the good times we had will always make us laugh and smile, just like Bob would want. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Heutmaker Family.

  4. Paul and Mary Jo Capistrant, Roseville MN
    Bob was a great friend, our friendship started in grade school at St. Rose of Lima. Bob was always upbeat and had a special laugh that you couldn’t forget. Bob never got upset and always liked a good prank. I’ll never forget the rides to Stillwater in the blue van, camping on the North Shore and driving up Carlton Peak, all the canoe trips on the St. Croix River and backpacking in Michigan. So many great memories that won’t be forgotten.
    We are grateful to have known Bob and will miss him deeply.
    Our hearts and condolences go out to Cathy and the kids and the Heutmaker family.

  5. I grew up with Bob @ St. Rose. He was always a good friend and teammate. I just today learned of his passing. I have not seen Bob for many years, but my fond memories of our youth remain. My condolences to the Heutmaker family.

  6. Dave Holt, Lino Lakes MN.
    I knew Bob since we were ten or eleven years old. I just heard of his passing in the last couple of days. We go way back to the days playing pony and cub football for St. Rose. Bob truely was one of the most likable person I ever knew. I believe the last time I saw Bob was at our 20 year reunion, so it’s been 15 years since we last spoke. I to remeber the many road trips in the van. He was always game for a good adventure. I will never forget the time we spent living together in Reno, NV. in our tiny, tiny effeciency apartment. We were 18 or 19 years old and did not have a care in the world. I Still to this day tell people the story of our month long trip through the western part of the country. Definately something I will always remember. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entiree Heutmaker family. Bob was a great friend, and I know he was equally a fine son, husband, and father. Rest assured. One thing I know is Bob packed a lot of life in the time he had and will be dearly missed by all he came in contact with..

  7. Bob
    Glendale High School will never be the same. We worked on many graduations together. I wish I could see you to say thank for for the excellent service and always smiling face. Rest in Peace my friend and God Bless your family. You will be missed.

  8. I was shocked by the news. I’ve only known Bob for a short time, but always considered him a friend. He always talked about his family and made you feel like you were part of his expanded family. He was a great man that will be deeply missed by many. Rest in Peace, Bob.

  9. I just heard about Bob and I am in complete shock! He was such a nice man and I loved working with him. He always talked about his kids. He was such a proud father. He will be missed dearly by all. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Rest in peace Bob.

  10. Bob was one of the kindest and friendliest people I knew. He always had a smile and always went the extra mile for his schools. I worked with him at graduation time for the last 20 years. He was always there and beyond professional. There will never be another representative like him. My prayers are with his family, whom he was very proud of, as I know the pain you are going through. May God bless you all and give you peace and the comfort of knowing Bob is always with you.

  11. Bob was a wonderful person who will be truly missed. I just heard about his death and am deeply saddened. He always took the extra time with students, parents, and staff. I have met his bothers and wife and are praying for God’s comfort for the family.

  12. I just learned of Bob’s death. I can’t tell you how sad this makes me. I worked at a school for 15 years and developed a great working friendship with him; discussing our kids and lives. He was absolutely wonderful after I lost my husband at a young age helping me with the costs of my kids graduations items. My thoughts and prayers to his family, who I know he loved very much. May you Rest In Paradise, Bob.

  13. I am so sad to hear the news of Bob’s passing. He made all of our graduations at Sunflower Alternative perfect. We are a small school and he went out of his way to make adjustments to our ordering system to meet our needs…even creating and printing out our graduation announcements himself! He was a wonderful man and we know we will never have another rep as amazing as he was. He was always happy! My condolences to his family. Sunflower will miss you Bob and our graduations will never be the same…

  14. Just learned of the passing of this great friend a few days ago. We knew one another back in the 1980s when Bob and I worked at the same restaurant and bar in Minneapolis. Many good times in those days, and Bob was always a shining example of what we all should be. I’m happy to say I tracked him down this past spring and sent him an email to let him know I was thinking about him and still connected in my mind. We had a good email chat like the last 25 years never happened. I am sorry to learn of Bob’s passing and wish Cathy and family peace in knowing that he’s smiling and laughing up in heaven. Bob was a great gentleman!
