Memories & Candles
Sherry and family, I am so saddened to learn of your loss. What wonderful memories I have of Bob and you and all of your grandkids and friends. Nathan comes to mind and of course uncle Kevin the talented artist, Bruce and Cathy and their love of history, and the wonderful meals and conversations, surrounded by the gorgeous Iowa prairie. Occasionally a pheasant would fly by, but he was safe with us. My neighbor Bill May here in northern Colorado

Bob was a great friend to my parents (Don and Peggy Cronin), as well as myself. He and Sherry always opened their home, their hearts, and gave smiles to everyone they encountered. Bob was a generous fellow, and I will always remember him being good to my family. Always a story, a joke, or a tale to tell.....I will never forget his brilliant knack for putting others at ease.
My regards to Sherry, and all of Bob's family and friends.

So sad, for all of us, to hear that Bob has gone on to be with the Lord. He will be greatly missed! I so wish I had made a trip back to see him sooner. I had planned to visit the middle of March. He was my only connection to my father's side of the family, that I had here in Iowa. Everything said about him is so true! A very happ,loving, caring and friendliest christian you could ever

I only met Bob about six and a half years ago, but my life was truly blessed by him. He was one of those few, special people that just lightened the room and made people happy every where he went.
He called about every man "brother" and he treated them even better than one.
Bob loved the Lord deeply and it was through his desire to see a Spanish Church planted in Ottumwa that I met him in Johnson CIty,

I have many awesome memories of Bob. He will be missed. I am grateful for all the great things Bob did for me. I still have all the items he gave me from Milligan College (now University) in Tenn. I show them off remember Bob every time I do. My pray are with Eric and all the family. Love you all.

Sherry, We are terribly saddened to lose Robert from our earthly dwelling and we share in your grief. We will forever treasure our introduction and short time spent in Alaska with the two of you. We followed closely your "adventures" as shared through my dad. Robert showed such an enthusiasm for life and a great amount of joy sharing travels with you. He will be sorely missed. God has called him to his final home. Praying you find comfort and peace in God's loving arms.
