  • Firstly to my aunt, her children, grandchildren, and his family I am still shocked of his sudden passing. I am deeply sorry for y’all’s loss and am sending love, prayers, and our deepest condolences to all of you. As stated above he did enjoy his family and helping anyone he could. I remember going to the fire house on several occasion’s and he’d grab one of the engines out for us to go for a ride in. He was a damn good smoke eater (firefighter) and was one of the many inspirations I had becoming one myself. I learned a lot from him through the years and though we had our ups and downs one thing I can say about this man was if I called he’d drop everything to talk or come help me out. He will be missed by many and he is loved by many including myself. I could go on and on about it but I feel like I encapsulated everything I could say summed up here. Rest peacefully uncle Bob. Give Jonathan, mommom, and poppop a hug for us. Until we see one another again love ya bud.
