So sorry to hear of your father's passing. I just saw it today (Thursday). I live across the street from your Dad and I did not know until now. May he rest in peace and my condolences to the family. I will miss him as I already miss seeing Lou in the neighborhood.

Bob was sharp, witty, warm and a good friend. We will miss him very much.

He was such a pleasant, friendly and fun person to talk to, yet he had a reserved and quiet persona about him at the same time.

To Bob's family- So sorry for the loss of you father. I enjoyed talking to him at the Community Center where we exercised. He truly was a sweet man. May God's comfort be with you all at this time. I will be praying for you.
