  1. Having met Bob at Berachah Church in the 1960’s we remained close friends and enjoyed our many times together. Bob was very talented and we worked together on projects for many years. Bob was a mature believer in Jesus Christ, having lived his life learning and applying God’s Word in his every day life. He and Marilyn enjoyed retirement in their home on the lake where he continued applying his many skills. He will be missed by many who knew him but thankfully we believers will join him in Heaven someday for eternity. Until we meet again my Friend!

  2. As many of us old and dear friends from Berachah, whom having known Bob from the good old sixties, I will always remember his cheerful spirit and happy chuckle. I never visited he and Marilyn that he wasn’t busy building something or other or tackling some yard project. Bob always offered Godly counsel and wisdom and his walk with our Lord was evident. I am thankful for him loving my precious friend, Marilyn, and for being a good husband to her. I will miss their laughter together, what a fun loving couple! We rejoice in his promotion but are saddened by his absence. I am sure the Lord welcomed him with “well done, my good and faithful servant”.

  3. Lots of memories of Fort Berachah North Forest with the Wootens, Gillises, Bartees, Fortunes and Justices. Bob’s son Jeffrey was one of my buddies growing up. Lots of great memories at the Canfield’s and New Years bashes. Good times. More good times to come in His presence.

  4. Mr.Bob was a very nice man. He was a fine example of honesty and integrity. He was a good neighbor and friend. Our prayers go out to Marilyn. God Bless

  5. Bob was accomplished professionally, so very sweet and funny personally and we will miss him dearly. We are so happy to know that his faith carried him to the end and that he was able to pass on when he was ready. He loved being a father, grandfather and great-grandfather and was so proud of every one of them. He also dearly loved his girlfriend, Miss Lily Jane, his sweet kitty. If time is good to us all, we hope to have as happy of a marriage as he did with his ‘Chief cook and bottle-washer’ Marilyn.
