I first met Bob when I was 16 at Woodland Beach when he introduced me to his friend, Wes. Bob was best man at our wedding. Wes and I enjoyed many happy times with Bob and then with Carol. Bob was truly a gentle man and loved his family and friends. He will be missed, but I know he and Wes are partying again in Heaven. God bless!
