Beth and Steve, we heard about your dad's passing from a dear friend in North Royalton. Such a surprise! We have many fond memories of time spent with your mom and dad. Both wonderful people.

My dear Beth and Stephen, I was in California when your aunt Linda called me about Bob' s passing. Your father was truly a wonderful kind and caring person. Our family will never forget the outstanding care he gave to my dear cousin Dorothy Ann. They were a dear, dear couple. I will never forget when they visited my husband and I in Florida and they took a ride on a motorcycle, your Mom was holding on to Bob for dear life. I have so many cherished memories of our lives together. As someone told me when I lost my husband many years ago, my mind still talks to you, and hears your voice clearly, and my heart still looks for you. But my soul knows your at peace. God bless you both, cousin Betz. Like some else said in their condolences, Go Bucks!!!!

RIP friend! So many memories. Distance over the past years made it difficult to see each other, but the long conversations made it seem as if we were right next door. And I can close with your favorite "Go Bucks"!

Bob and Dottie were the best neighbors. Bob encouraged me to join the Lions Club and taught me how to give back to my community.

Fond memories of my older cousin Bob, childhood stays on the Farm and esp Bob and his horse, Bonnie. 8 years younger I thought he was the bravest man in the world going into that big and boistrous animal's stall. Please accept our sincerest condolences. It's been a tough month for you dear cousins. RIP Bob.
