  1. Dear Ruth and Karen, Please accept my deepest sympathies for your Loss. I clearly remember Bob€™s smile, and his amazing energy. I remember when he would walk in your house during the holidays, the energy in the room would just sparkle as he entered. He was too young to have left you both, I am so sorry for the pain you must be going through. I will keep you all in my prayers, and I pray the Lord to comfort you both in your time of need. I’m sure we will all meet again in heaven. Most Sincerely, Adrianne Taufa (Isabelle€™s Daughter – Robin)

  2. Mrs. Grace, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family following the loss of your son Bob. Yours in Scouting, Steve Rothans

  3. I am very sad to learn of Bob’s passing. We worked together for many years and eventhough we broke each other’s hearts we always remained friends. My mother hoped we would get married(many years ago)but the timing never came together He actually bought a cook book and delivered it to my mother when I was gone camping at the Colorado River. I remember Another time he wanted our parents to get aquainted so he planned an night out and we went to see a stage play downtown. Bobby was kind and gentle, he was also annoying and irritating at times but that was Bobby. He came to visit about a year ago. I fixed his computer but I don’t think he ever connected it again. We talked several times on the phone and He said he was working with his doctor and feeling better. I decided to call because my neighbor just told me he used to work City Ford. He worked in parts and he knew Bobby. When his phone was disconnected I knew something was wrong. I knew he was gone but I wasn’t ready to accept it. I started searching and I found this memorial so I know it’s true but he’s free and it’s time to say good-bye. Thank you for keeping the information available I’m very sorry for your loss. He spoke often of his family and loved you very much. Bye-Bye Bobby, I Miss You Carol
