Bob passed away gently at home on Sunday Dec 28, 2008 with is wife Bobbi holding his handand stroking his head. His life was full of adventure, fun and learning. He served his country in the Army for 4 years and got to travel all over the world. He experienced the different cultures and learn to converse in their language.
His life was like a mysterious sponge, devouring great literature, adsorbing wonderful music, and mastering little things like chess, bridge, tennis, golf, skydiving, skiing, billiards, gourmet cooking and of course, shuffleboard.
He could quote pages from books that he hadn't read in over 40 years and could carry on an impressive intelligent conversation with anyone on just about any subject.
Cancer finally took it's ugly toll, but not before he had accomplished everything he ever set out to do, including marrying his sweetheart and soul mate Bobbi Price on Christmas Eve 2007.
Bob was always a gentleman full of love and respect for others. He loved telling joke and was not above being politically incorrect at times. His boyish charm, however, allowed him to get away with it and no one seemed to care.
He leaves behind his loving family: Maureen, John, Bonnie, Annie, Brendon, Andreanna, Tom, Lisa, Jack, Scott and Julian, Lori, Scooter, Kip, Jade, Lindsey, Trent, Ocean and Kira and wonderful and supportive friends.
We will miss him terribly and we were so lucky to have had him in our lives. There will never be another quite like him.
