Bob was one of the sweetest, kind and sincere person I have ever known. Along with his wife Joy, they were always there to enjoy a family get-together or just a simple wing night. Bob was an awesome father, husband and friend and he will forever be missed but never forgotten. My condolences to his family and to Joy and their three beautiful children. I'm always here for you. God bless ❤️
