Dear Lorraine, Dolores ,Paul and families.
I only met Bob once, but that was enough to know what a pleasant man he was. We were at the state park and had a great time sitting at the beach, enjoying a good day with all of you.

May your wonderful memories of Bob help you get through this difficult time.

Lorraine & Family, sorry for your loss. We enjoyed working with him at Cotter. What a yarn he could spin! He always had us smiling and laughing. Lots of pleasant memories and we enjoyed seeing you at the Cotter reunion a couple years ago. We know you are going to miss him. God bless

We will always remember the cruise that we shared with Bob and cousin Lorraine to Bermuda from Boston and the fun times that we had. Bob was a natural born comedian and even though we heard his jokes more than once they were still funny. Bob is no longer in pain, rest in peace, love

My Uncle Bob was an inspiration to me, my wife Brenda and my kids. Even in his latter years, when wheelchair confined, he brought joy to all of us with his can-do spirit and happy demeanor. I still remember him entertaining us in earlier years as a one-man band! I will miss him, but know he is in a better place as an angle entertaining the other angles!
