    I’m very sorry for your loss. Bob was my first boss at Methodist, and he was always kind and caring.

    Bob was such a lovely and kind man, he will be deeply missed. We will all cherish memories of Bob discussing Norte Dame football & golf games; Bob loved his family and his eyes lit up whenever one of his sons was near, and so devoted to his beloved Susie. We will cherish Bob; always: God bless
