It is with a lot of sadness that I hear about your lost.
I will always have found memories of the trip I took with Bob in the mid 70's to visit some of the John Deer plants. I will always remember his kindness and his big smile will be anchored in my minds for ever.
I am thinking of all of you in those difficult times.

Very sincerely,

Norbert (the Frenchman)

To Nancy and family, very sorry for your loss. All of us at the flying club are really going to miss Bob. Our club would of course not have been possible without his kindness, guidance, hard work and commitment over the years. I feel very fortunate to have known Bob as a friend and in working with him on the club board. He was a true gentleman.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of my good friend. He was a wonderful man and he was a great friend as well. We share in your grief at our sad loss. I know for certain that we never truly lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.

Bob will surely be missed. As a member of the Aeronuts, I always enjoyed just sitting and talking with Bob as much as the flying. May God be with the family during this time of sadness.
