Bob and Yvonne were the first friends we had when we moved to Franklin in 1965. Bob was always willing to help and to give advice. Bob, Yvonne, John and I spent several Sat. nights sitting around the kitchen table playing Euchre. I remember Bob's smile and his laugh. I remember when he started his business in St. Charles and also his many travels. One time when several volts of electricity knocked him to the ground, Bob fought and came back to his family. I will remember Bob to be a loving caring person who loved life. He will be missed by many.
My fondest memories of Bob were that he was such a kind and gentle man, and had a great laugh. Since I spent most of my high school years staying at their home, he was like a second father to me. He will be missed by many who knew and loved him. My deepest sympathy to his family, my heart goes out to them.
