  • Bob was one of the kindest gentleman we have ever met. Sitting at the Bridge table with him was the best part of any day of cards. He always made us feel so welcome and cared about. We miss his smile.

  • Bob was such a wonderful man, a loving husband, proud father and grandfather…. but for me and my mom, a true friend. After my father passed away, I always knew that Bob was keeping a watchful eye out for my mom down there in Summerfield. As they aged, Bob moved back to Ohio and my mom moved here to Jacksonville FL, but they remained in contact with each other. I will truly miss the emails and occasional notes that I received from him. He could always make you feel good.

  • I am truly saddened by the passing of uncle Bobby. I will never forget the times at the river, listening to the Reds on the radio with him at the picnic table. He will be missed, and remain an important part of my life and memories. RIP uncle Bobby

  • I worked with Bob Quick for only a few years in the 1980’s, but his influence on me has lasted a life time. Bob was always eager to listen, and when he spoke it always in a gentle voice making a well reasoned point. We are all lessened by a world without Bob Quick in it. My condolences to his family at the loss.
