    There was never a better boss or better friend. I cannot imagine the crowd to greet him at the gates of heaven. His spirit is shown in the tremendous family still here to carry on his legacy. God bless one and all.

    Matt, I am so sorry to hear about your father passing. We talked just last week and you let me know that things were rough but you were hoping that things would smooth out. You know that everybody at work is sending their condolences and prayers. The only thing I can offer that might help is listen to the song “Drift Away” by Uncle Cracker. Hang in there and know that you and your family are in my prayers.

    I was saddened to hear about of the passing of Bob he was a friend, great boss, and father figure to so many over his career at Boys Town. I was blessed to have worked with him for over 20 years, and he had a profound impact on my life and career.

    I remember his kindness, wisdom, and unwavering support throughout my professional journey. It is rare to find a boss who is also a mentor and friend, and I know how much he meant to all.

    Please accept my deepest condolences during this difficult time. Our friend, great boss, and father figure will be missed, but his memory will live on through the lives he touched.

    My deepest condolences to the Stoffel family. I’ll always remember Bob for his quick wit, kindness, and his great ability to ‘tell it like it was’. It was an honor to work with him (Boys Town).

    I came in contact with Bob pretty regularly at Boys Town, and he always had a fishing story to tell. Whenever we had IT issues, I would call Bob and they were taken care of quickly and professionally. He and his family had a long & contributing relationship with the Home, to the benefit of many. Now he’s gone to his reward and I know he’s smiling down on us all!

    I WAS saddened to learn that Bob had passed away. I knew him when I served in the Army Resrves. I know that he was a fine husband, father and grandfather. Again my sympathies to his family.

    Pam and family, may Christ’s comfort be yours.

    Pam and family: so many memories of Bob and all of you. From those memorable thanksgivings to sharing so many other joys and helping each other through sorrows.. Bob was a great combination of qualities enshrined in memories of MIT and Mary Ellen.
