He was a great man. He was the boss at my first job and taught me a lot. We fell out of touch since, but have always ran into each other around the valley and immediately remembered one another each time. He was always happy to see me and his smile was contagious. He was generally one of the nicest people I knew every day of the week. My heart goes out to the entire family, especially his Children. I am so glad I ran into him one last time just a few days before this and got to talk to him for awhile and catch up. He will be missed by so many people here in Colorado, almost everyone I know knew him as well.

Dear Deb: Bob indeed was an amazing person and always so kind to me -- as was your whole family when you lived next door on Clarence Avenue in Berwyn. I cannot imagine the depth of your grief over losing your son Bob. I cannot think of any words that might console you but hope you know that he was very much loved and that you will be in my prayers. I'm sure Bob is looking down with love and devotion on all your family -- because family meant everything to him. Again, my sincere condolences and may fond memories of Bob bring you comfort - in time. Linda Louise Schmidthuber
