    My searching saw the sad news. As I began to realize who this was… memories of a preschool boy in Widewater, laughing and enjoying life!…. and lastly, meeting on the curling rink in Soest, Germany in 1970. Oddly, I had been thinking of Bob…. and now I know there was a reason.
    Special thoughts to his mother and father as well as Barbara and David….
    My condolences to all the his extended family…
    Keith Bowen, Palm Springs, California retired 10 years ago… living in the desert but miss the “farm”!

    Our family is saddened to hear about Dr. Depledge. Kevin began seeing him in 1975 and Sue in 1980. All three of our girls benefited from his excellent care into adulthood. Dr. Depledge was an all-round quality person who not only took great pride in his work but also his family. Most of our conversations revolved around all of our daughters and their bright futures. For our family visits to the dentist meant visits with our friend Bob Depledge.
    We will all miss him,
    Kevin, Sue, Paige, Gina and Ellen Phillips

    I worked at with Bob at Mayfair Place and am very sad to hear of his passing from Annette. My thoughts and prayers are with all his family and I am so sad he is gone so young. He was always friendly and kind to me. Bob went out of his way to treat people that worked directly for him like family, and that says a lot about someone, who despite their successes, seemed to always be able and happy to relate with everyone; make people feel good about themselves. God Bless,
