Sorry to lose a good friend and golf buddy. He will be missed in our Tuesday & Thursday "old farts league" at Pleasant Hills. We always had a very enjoyable time with Bob, he was a lot of fun. Left us way to soon.
My Deepest Sympathy to the family.

My favorite story to tell is from when I was soooo little! So long ago that Grandpa and Grandma lived on Lincoln road. Grandpa used to tease me, and tell me his missing fingers were in the drawer of Grandma’s sewing machine. I’d giggle and say that they weren’t, and he would tell me to go look. I never did of course; I was always scared I might find them!

No matter who you ask about Grandpa, they all will say the same thing: He was a good man. And there is so much more to say about him. But if I had to choose one word, it would be “bright.” Bright, like that twinkle in his eye when he looked at you... it made you feel so special. And bright, as in, that’s really the only kind of day I could have, when it came to being with Grandpa.
