'Sorry I didn't know sooner! I was honored to be a small part of his earlier years. Bob was a great friend... was only able to touch base with him once when he was with Swift & Co. 'Miss you, Bob!
Little Brother Dennis
Bob was a wonderful and loving person and always thought of others.
He was both a Brother to me and Father figure. I am grateful that God allowed him to bless my life for many years - he touched many hearts - and was a person who loved children, and always cared for those in need.
During my most recent visit with him in Nashville TN - we attended church together - and also in MS several times.
I am especially comforted by my Sister Amys comment that Bob told her he had accepted Christ as his personal savior.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life . . . and our ticket to eternal life in Heaven forever.
May God comfort his entire family, friends, relatives, and co-workers as we joyfully await that special reunion in the sky - for all those who trust in Jesus for Salvation.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also!

Bob was a very special friend, buddy, and pal. He will be greatly missed! His presence made individuals from all walks of life feel at home, full of smiles and much laughter. It is such a blessed privelege to have known Bob on this pilgrim pathway we call life. My perpetual prayers are with the whole family during this sad and difficult time. May the result of his parting bear much fruit in God's kingdom. Much love in Christ.
