  1. My prayers are with Bob and all of you at this time. May Jesus give him everlasting happiness.

  2. You all have my deepest regrets at your loss. I will always remember “Big Bear” and the many things that shaped all of our lives growing up in Bissell. The many friday nights of cards and boxing our folks watched and played will always bring back such fond memories. May peace be with all of you and may your memories be happy ones. God bless.

  3. Deeply saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. As his first cousin (and born exactly one week after him) I have very fond memories of us growing up in Central Illinois, and all the family get togethers we attended. He’ll be missed.

  4. May God bless you and keep you close to his heart, bringing you comfort and guiding you on this part of the journey. My sincere condolences go out to Bob’s family, Aunt Virginia and cousins Richard and Bill.

  5. Dear Stephanie,You have my deepest condolences. Bob was such a great guy and will be missed greatly by me. I always looked forward to him comming into the bank and visiting with him and listening to his stories. We would get looks from some because we would get too loud, laughing and his telling it like it is!! True Bob!! I know he is entertaining God in heaven now. God bless and peace to you and your family.
