  • Dad I miss you so much already. I was so lucky to have you as my dad. I cannot begin to thank you enough for everything you taught me. You taught me to work hard everyday and to make smart decisions. You taught me way more than school or books ever could teach anybody. I will miss our daily talks about what is going on at the farm. I will miss your advice. I hope I can continue to farm as well as you did. I look forward to being able to farm again with you. I am glad you are not in any pain any longer. I know it was rough, but you are so tough. I will do my best to continue to make you proud. I love you Dad.

  • May Bob rest in peace on the farms of his dreams let us all know that he had a life as a farmer and as such earned the respect of those who realize in most lives it’s the farmers who produce more than they consume during a lifetime……most non farmers consume more than they produce during a lifetime…..may Bob rest in peace…may all who have survived Bob be at peace having known Bob….

  • We will miss Bob’s jokes, sarcasm and teasing as well as his concern if you had a problem at all of the Parker’s get togethers. He will always be in our hearts and minds. Thank you God for memories!

  • My thoughts and prayers are with everyone especially Aunt Pat, Andy, Tim, Rob and their families. I hope your memories help you through the grief. At the Parker family get togethers, I always enjoyed seeing and talking with Uncle Bob. I will miss him.

  • Pat, Tim, Andy, and Robbie,
    We are really sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with your family. I always enjoyed talking to Bob at our kids sporting events. Bob would tell you like it was and I admired him for that. R.I.P Bob.

  • Dear Kain Family,
    Our prayers are with your family. Bob was a great man and we were glad to have him as a friend. We are sorry we were not able to be at his funeral but please know that we are thinking of you.

  • Pat and family, so sorry Bob passed away. Growing up in Brown Township together we have a lifetime of good memories. Being in New Jersey it is impossible for me to attend the services. However you will all be in my heart and prayers. When in Ohio for visits and high school reunions had lots of good times being with Bob. He was a good man. You are precious friends.

  • My condolences to the Kain Family . It was a privilege and honor knowing Bob Kain . I always looked up to him and had great respect for him . Bob gave my brother and my family a piglet about 35 years ago said it was the runt probably won’t live well this “runt ” who lived in our house and went in and out like the dogs until she was to big for the house grew to about 1200 + pounds . Thank you Mr. Kain for the “runt ” piglet miss Daisy . He laughed about this until this day . Rest in peace Bob It was an honor knowing you .May you all find peace comfort and understanding at this time .
    God Bless you all

  • Dear Pat, Tim, Andy and Rob;
    Our thoughts and Prayers are with you. I was privileged to know Bob since I was 13 bailing hay for him. Bob also helped me with my farming during my high school years. Rob Jr and our son Peter were on several ball teams together over the years, and always Bob and Pat were there cheering the boys on. Bob will be missed and I know that Light perpetual will shine upon his face.
    God Bless
