I have been Bob and Patsy’s next door neighbor for the past 8 years and saddened by Bob’s passing. When it says in the obit that Bob “loved his family the most” I can attest to that. There were many a times that Bob and I stopped to talk to each other and he would get to telling his stories about all of his personal adventures, but he would beam with joy when he talked about his family. Little did Bob realize is he told me those stories many thimes over, but that’s testament to how much he loved his family. I would gladly lend my ear to hear them again. I’ll miss you neighbor. Thanks for all the stories. My deepest condolences to the rest of the family.
