    Bob was one tuff cookie, he was always up beat even in times of trouble! Bob had a strong passion for fellow ship and was always ready for a god conversation! Bob loved to cook and share a crock pot full of Pintos with friends or a trip to the the oyster Bar. I will miss hearing his stories of his journeys over a cold beer! My condolences to Bobs family and friends! RIP Bob God Bless!
