Condolences to Bob's family.  Amid his own struggles, he always asked about my mom & dad...  I'll miss seeing and talking with him.  Truly a kind, goodhearted and genuine gentleman.

We will miss Bob- he quickly became our favorite neighbor when we moved back To Carolyn's homestead. He was always there to lend a hand with anything. He'd beat me to cutting my own grass or shoveling snow! Carolyn called me a week ago Saturday to tell me Bob was at the house looking for me to give me his bad news. I promised I'd take him for a drive in the coming days, I'm saddened I didn't get the chance. We'll cherish our times with Bob. God bless you all, Pat and Carolyn Quinn/neighbors.
