  1. Suzanne, I want to tell you that Bob was one of my favorite people in our Lions Club. I will miss his sense of humor, his dedication to what we do as a Lions Club, and his always speaking his mind when he believed it necessary to do so. I will miss his announcement when entering a club meeting by saying, “Howdy Soaks! I mean folks.”, follwed by his self-satisfying cakling laugh. It never failed to lift my spirit. He will be a member long remembered and impossible to duplicate. He truly was “one of a kind”. Please accept my deepest sympathy at your loss.
