Being one of the eleven children in the family, I can honestly say that I could not have asked for a better brother. He was always caring, loving and supportive to his family. We will all miss him tremendously. Rest in peace in the arms of Jesus Christ, our dear Lord and Savior.

Bob was a good friend and generous with his collection of bluegrass music. A lot of the CDs that I have came from Bob! He also sang at my wedding....I'll never forget it! I will miss him but keep him dear in my heart.
