    Bob extended his hand in friendship over 30 years ago and continued to be someone we could always count on. Our hearts are saddened with his loss and our deepest sympathies go out to Ann – they were truly a happy couple walking through life together. Andy, Connie and Isabella and Liam – he was so proud of all of you. How lucky you are to have known him. Fond good wishes to you all. Bob’s values will live on through you.
