    Dear Cousins,
    Very sorry to hear about uncle Bob passing away. In our large family he will be missed. One of the kindest men I’ve ever known, always taking the ribbing from his nieces and nephews brothers and sisters in law or children and grandchildren, with a smile. I think he actually enjoyed it, as long he was around all the love and laughter.
    Tom

    So many fond memories of an honest, kind and loving man who contributed so much to the love and happiness of his and our family. The first Chivers Christmas Party was held in the basement of Evelyn and Bob’s house, the long discussions he enjoyed with Dad (granddad Chivers) on the CPR, and I’m sure he attended every wedding in our family. We will miss him at our next Chivers family gathering.
    Love
    Marsha and Uncle Harry
