Bob ALWAYS delighted in being of service to others during their many years of living in Elk.

City. One of his passions was doing tire work for friends, strangers, and people who truly could use the

help; fixing flats, changing out tires, and so on. It could be seen at these times that Bob’s generosity.

funny (at least he thought so!), stable, understanding, clever, creative, dependable, providing,

comforting, interesting and uncomplicated.

grandchildren, great grandchildren and has been a wonderful blessing to all. There is no one like him.
