Memories Timeline


  1. I was in a Bible Study with Bob for many years after he moved to Pueblo. In 2006, he sat down and wrote out for me in long hand “ONE MAN’S FAITH JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE.” I have kept it in the front of my personal Bible and have referred to it many times through the years. I miss him and I miss his wisdom.

  2. We made Bob’s acquaintance at Primrose Retirement Living Center. We enjoyed many lunches together…exchanging stories of his life…and his deep love for Sally.
    Condolences to his family. May your happy memories of Bob warm your hearts.
    Wayne and Lynne Hockman

  3. Pastor Bob was a kind, upbeat, faithful servant — always had a song in heart. He will surely be missed.

  4. Bob and Sally, they go together….. along with Marileen who are not blood related to me however have shown so much love for Kenadie and I. They are my family …. special memories in California when they came out to visit, or at ever holiday since we moved to Colorado in 2005, YMCA in Estes Park lots of laughter and reunions or just because …. I will miss them; they will forever be in my heart! One day we will all be together. My deepest condolences to Marileen, Duane, Dale, family and friends!
    Much love,
    Kristi and Kenadie

  5. Bob Enck was a wonderful person. In many ways he reminded me of my grandfather–and not just because of his hair, or lack of it–his many years of ministry, which in many ways did not end just because he retired; his warmth, his humor, his love of music. I will never forget him.

  6. Our condolences, Duane, and Dale, Erica and Matt, Thomas and Erin, Carol, Jacque and Enck family.
    Bob was ALWAYS so gentle, humble, affirming and FUNNY.
    I will FOREVER remember Bob’s reply when I asked how he was doing at Pueblo FUMC:
    “I’m in pretty good shape for the shape I’m in.”
    LOVE your family and can’t WAIT to see your Reunion In Christ’s Presence, friends.
    Praying His Peace, Provision and Hope in the meantime…
    Will Bratina

  7. Our deepest condolences to the Enck family. We send our love to Dale who helped with business affairs. God bless you all in this difficult time. Elizabeth Harwood

  8. Bob and Sally were our neighbors for many years and they were both welcoming and friendly. Bob would often sing to my children.
    Our sincere condolences

  9. Dear Bob,
    Thanks for all you did for our family. Glad we were able to spend time in Hawaii for your 25th Anniversary. I tried to get you, Sally and Deanna into the water, but no way. Thanks for taking Deanna and I bowling for the first time in Amherst. Thanks for allowing us to visit your homes in many places. Love you and say hi to our family. Sally is waiting for you.

    Love, Marileen

  10. Rev. Bob was Pastor at Hanscom Park United Methodist Church in Omaha NE when my husband Bruce and I married there. I have many fond memories of Pastor Bob and his wife Sally from the time they were here. Such good people. My love goes out to Dale and Duane, and their families. God be with you.

  11. Uncle Bob brought a special personal touch to our marriage ceremony 48 years ago by presiding over our vows. He always had a positive and uplifting influence. Our sympathy to Dale, Duane and their families.

  12. Prayers for the family and friends. I went to school with his children in Elmwood, NE. Karen (Heaps) Redd.

  13. My life changed for the better because of Bob and Sally bringing me into their home. They shared their love and their boys Dale, Duane and David with me like my own brothers. I am forever grateful for their love given to a 15 year old homeless girl. All my love, Jacque
