Online Condolences


  1. I‘m offering my belated condolences. I initially lost touch with Bob when I moved overseas a few years ago, but thought about him and his dog Dozer from time-to-time. It hit me that I hadn’t heard from him or seen any posts online for a long time, and that’s when I came across his obituary. He was a character and a lot of fun to be around. I loved hearing Bob‘s stories and being engulfed by Dozer, who seemed to really love me (and thought of himself as a lap dog). Bob helped me out quite a bit and was a friend. I regret not keeping in contact with him after I moved. I know it’s been awhile since he passed, but I’m very sorry for your loss.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. He was our realtor, but he was more than that. We both found ourselves late in life and shared that common bond. May his memory be a blessing.

  3. I had numerous phone calls with Bob in 2020 with a buyer referral from Las Vegas to Houston. Bob was a very nice, professional, and interesting guy. Sadly never got to meet him in person. My condolences to all his family and friends.
