Our brother-in law, Bob, was a one of a kind story teller and all around interesting man to talk to and always wanted to know how you were doing and what was going on in your life. Being his age, he had seen alot and done alot. Loved his cup of strong , black, hot coffee! He will be so missed along with Roger and Pete. They were all great men, and all back together in Heaven.
