Got to know Bob very well the last 15 mos., as I cleaned his home. I always looked forward to our visiting before starting the morning cleaning. I absolutely loved his dry sense of humor!! I will certainly miss him, and his laughter!! RIP Bob!!

What a kind person. Frist as our neighbor and then I worked for him for a few years. He would come home for lunch, and cook lunch for me . We ate out on the porch, weather permitting, and always had a geat visit. Once he said to me, you were playing with the puppies. I said how do you know. He said he could smell my perfume on the fur. I just smiled and so did he. I know he liked that I paid attention to them. So many of the dogs were my favorites.

I will miss knowing he is not on Binker Hill.

It was always a pleasure to do business with Bob and brother Bill as I remodeled my home. Later when Bill and Bob retired, they had a "Retirement Office" in the same building where my office was located. There were many good laughs with the retirement office and their retired friends visiting them.
