The family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of Brookdale Senior Living for the friendship, love, and compassion Bob felt during the last years of his long life. He considered Brookdale home.
In lieu of flowers or memorial contributions we ask that you consider reaching out to someone who could use a little friendship, if only for a few minutes. The experience will last a lifetime.
The family will hold a private service at a future date.
