  • Bob was the very best brother in law you could ever have, always willing to help with whatever you needed done. When it came to work ethics he was way ahead of whatever you had set out to do. He worked just as hard when it came to playing euchre, he was very hard to beat and it took all your efforts to beat him. Enjoyed being in the game with him as a partner or against him. The Best for sure. He’s left a hole in our hearts. God bless his family in this sorrowful time. RIP Bob.

  • My heart is very saddened. Bob was one of a kind. He would always say, you don’t have to let the others know I’m your favorite. Followed by, you can just come live with me.

    Sending love to you all. May God comfort you.

  • Uncle Bob was like a big kid. He would play ball with us kids at Grandpa and Grandma Woldford’s house when we were little, he would play tag. I use to think that he was some kind of Superman with all the energy that he had. My heart is very sad but I know that his home is heaven and I’ll get to see him again. I love you aunt Shirley may God comfort you in your time of sorrow.

  • So sorry to hear this. My condolences to Shirley Larry and Kevin and the rest of the family. I met Bob and Shirley once and just wonderful people. I can still remember his laugh partly because all 3 of the McKee men sound similar. Praying for y’alls comfort and healing

  • I have so many great memories of Uncle Bob, he was so good to me as a kid & an adult! He was a great guy, he will be truly missed. Aunt Shirley, you and the family will be in my thoughts and prayers…….

  • I’m so sad to hear this Bob taught me and he is reason I’m doing what I do ! We were good In The trees ! My most depest sympathy to Shirley Kevin and Larry ! 💔

  • Sorry for your loss,, always enjoyed hearing Kevin’s storys of the crazy projects his dad got into with no fear

  • I still can’t believe that Uncle Bob is gone. I always thought he had superpowers… climbing trees, full of energy, and surviving everything that came his way. Our family will not be the same without him. I love you Aunt Shirley and I’m praying for you during this difficult time.
