We share your sorrow and hope you will reach out to let us express our love and friendship now and in the future.

    We were so sorry to see about Bob’s passing in today’s paper. We send our sincere condolences. We always enjoyed seeing you at Mass at Holy Family and sitting close to you, We liked when we would run into at dinner on Saturday evenings after Mass. We remember you giving us the dessert coupon at Ruby Tuesdays.

    You are in thought and prayer.
    Blessings and Love, Ray and Kathy

  11. Bob was a hard worker and friend at the Colorado Mental Health Institute here in Pueblo. I had the privilege of knowing and working with him for many years. The whole team in patient accounts looked forward to his yearly trip to New Jersey, where he would generously bring back and share his favorite bagels…only available there! Yes, indeed they were very good. He had a heart for people and would help anyone in anyway he could. He sure made our work there very enjoyable with his humor and the special way he would pronounce “New Jurrshey” as he new the correct pronunciation. My wife and I are praying God will surround the whole family with His Perfect Peace at this difficult time. Mannon and Sandy Lukehart.
