Our condolences to our friends Heather & Holly and family, on the passing on their father Bob on Sun. May 20.

Bob was what you would call "the strong, silent type" with emphasis on the latter of the two.

There were two things you could pretty much guarantee Bob would be wearing when you ran into him. His trusty suspenders and a great big smile. Another familiarity, never far from Bob's side, was his dear wife Liz (who I still swear is secretly named Dorothy.)

It was not unusual to see the happy couple enjoying burgers and fries (Hey... don't forget the condiments) at local Wendy's restaurants. That was one of the places I saw them often, as well as Weir/MacNeil family functions such as weddings, stag & does, Christmases and birthdays.

Bob was an avid card player and good with math (meaning you likely wouldn't want to bet against his hand unless you were darn sure you would beat him.)

At one time, the words 'Dad's Deliveries' could have rightfully been painted on the side of his cars. Many was the time when I would be visiting Bob's daughter Heather and her husband Doug, when he would show up, there to either drop off or pick up something to or from his wife. 

Whenever I think of him, that contagious smile will always come to mind which in turn will always bring a smile to my face. That's something Bob had the uncanny ability to do....make us smile...and it's something that will live on forever, when we think of him.

He was a devoted husband, father, grandpa and friend to many, who will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace Bob.
