My sympathy to his family & friends. From: Drew Spangler Oct 8 2020 6:55AM I grew up next door to Bob and Lola. What I will always remember is Bob's patience. He would never shoo me away when I would stop by after school but rather take a moment to teach me something. From: Tom & Jill Schaefer Oct 8 2020 1:01PM Bobette ~

From: Amy Birch Oct 10 2020 11:15AM Bobette and Charlie, I am sorry for the loss of your dad. He helped mold 2 wonderful people and left you with good memories that last forever. My thoughts and prayers are with you. From: roger arnett Oct 10 2020 11:51AM Bobette, Charlie and family:
I will never forget the way Bob and Lola treated everyone they were around. Their love and patience truly epitomized the way I believe Christ wants us to treat everyone, every day. Hard workers in the church and raising a great family are truly a true testimony of how great they truly were. They will be missed but we will be together some day in God's beautiful Kingdom. I pray for peace in your grieving and your healing. Best Regards, Roger
From: Mike T Hammond Oct 10 2020 8:49PM Dear Bobette and Charlie,
Your Dad (and Mom) was such a good person to be around. We were are all better for having known him. He was such a huge part of my life and I have so many wonderful memories. Your Dad will never be gone as long as he lives on in our hearts and minds. I wish I could tell you everything I learned from Bob and all our adventures working, fishing, hunting, and life in general. We sure had fun.
I'm sure your hearts are breaking, but I hope that your memories bring you comfort. I'm sorry that we're so far away, but wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you all.
Mike and Joanna Hammond
