  1. Dear Josephine and Family,
    I was sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I knew Bob as a customer of Dad’s restaurant, the Bib ‘n Tucker in Pueblo. I always enjoyed his company. I don’t think anybody including myself ever beat Bob at arm wrestling. 🙂 I don’t know whether Harold Gardner ever did or not. Probably not. Bob was a very good hearted person. God bless you and your family and friends.

  3. Josie and family

    We are so sorry to hear about Robert as we know the pain and hurt it is to loose a Husband, Father and Friend. Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. As I drove past your house numerous times this past year to visit my folks- I saw your dad on the porch. I could tell he was ailing. My thoughts are with you all. Collette, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you. Take care.

  5. I fully intended to attend the services but I got distracted and lost track of time. I’m so sorry for your loss. I will miss seeing him on the front porch. It was nice to have him wave as I went by everyday.
