So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He and I were roommates at Sweden Valley Manor for a while

Sweet, kind, gentle, patient, caring, respectful, honest, and devout. Those are the words that come to mind when I think of Bobby from so many years ago at Hebron. See you in Heaven with your smile!

I remember Bobby and his family running the little store in Coneville. He was such a nice kind gentleman. We would always go in the store with a quarter or some kind of change and always left with a little brown bag full of candy. But those were the days of good times. He was always so nice and polite. There were many of us children that lived up the road and would be in that store all the time for a long time. Never rushed us out or hurried us even if it meant his food was getting cold. I send my condolences to his family and many friends (especially in the Coneville area). Prayers to the family, GOD BLESS and may the good LORD keep his hands on your shoulders as you grieve the passing of a great person.

I have nice childhood memories of Bobby, and I remember how patient he always was with all of us kids, no matter how long it took us to decide on what kind of candy we wanted. He never tried to hurry us along.
