We knew Bob through some volunteer work that we did. The memory of his generous and kind heart towards others, especially toward the homeless will stay with us as a wonderful example of self giving. He taught us what real kindness is. May he rest now in peace. Jerry & Ceil Wright
Bobby as my Mom always called him, did have a HUGE laugh that filled a room. He was always around my house hanging out more with my parents than me at sometimes. Bob was a helper, he always wanted to help people and would do it with enthusiasm, and a smile. Bob and I lived together for a number of years, and all I can say is thank goodness we both made it threw it :)....it's hard thinking about Bob in this way, but I can honestly say this....He was a good friend to me and I will always be thankful for that.
