  1. CandleImageBob was an amazing person who lived life to the fullest with his beautiful wife Bonnie by his side, he performed his ventriloquist routine with his puppets at my second wedding 💒 in Pueblo West and the children enjoyed his show. He was always a generous and giving person sharing the joys and light of Christ with everyone he encountered. I know that he is with the angels in Heaven with Jesus Christ
