Jan and family, we are so sorry for your loss! Bobby will be greatly missed as he was greatly loved!
He served his Lord well and now Bobby is rejoicing in his Heavenly home with Jesus! What a comfort
for his family to know he has been welcomed into his eternal home.
May you find peace and comfort in these days and days to come.
Jan, I am sending you a big hug and our deepest sympathy!
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
Our heartfelt love and prayers to all of you.

Jan, Shannon, Rob, and Pete: Words can not express the sorrow we felt when we heard of the home going of our dear friend.
Bobby had the ability to get the "right" things done when there was a need that glorified his Lord. He and I always tried to see
who was the "tightess" when it came to spending. Thanks for the memories and good times. Bobby could always make the bad
things better. Closing with this: It seems that our circle is getting smaller.......... May God keep you all in the clef of the rock and give you peace for the coming days. With heartfelt sympathy, we are Rogers & Barbara
