    We had just been talking about Bob just the other day, laughing about some of the things we did when we were teenagers, and talking about how Bob helped us out so many times. We will miss him.

    I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. He was much too young to leave you this soon. You could always tell when Bob (usually with Clay, Ann, and Dave) was over at our place hanging out with Nancy, his laugh could fill the entire house. I only ever remember him laughing, and that’s how I’ll always think of him. My condolences, Jill

    I am sad to hear about Bob. Bob was our friend in high school. Nancy Johnson, Bob and I spent hours over cups of coffee discussing anything that came to mind. Of course this is when we could get him out of the house….and all the way to Aldersyde.

    I have not seen Bob for years, but when remembering old times with school mates, Bob’s name always came up. What we laugh about the most, is when I had an 8track in the car, and Bob had speakers. He did not like country music, I put in a country music 8track, so he took his speakers and went home.

    I am sad for your loss.

    Ann

    I was shocked and so very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. Although I haven’t seen him in many years, I have many fond memories of childhood years playing hide and seek nite tag, ping pong games after highschool classes and his great disposition and kind heart. He put up with Rhonda Clark and I an awful lot in Jr High and shared some terrific laughter. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    To the de Roaldes Family
    We were very saddened to hear of the passing of Bob. We were an acquaintence of Bob. I truly enjoyed talking to him, he was always in a good mood and such a gentleman. I never did get the chance to meet you Jo-Ann but my sister Fran who was married to Doug at the time said you were a lovely lady and she was happy Bob had met you.
