I will never forget the amount of people (and officers) that attended your funeral. It was the most people I have ever seen at CDUMC! I have nothing but fond memories of you and your family from back then and always enjoyed our interactions at church. I was only 12 when you passed and stumbled upon this site via Facebook. I remember being "chased by the cops" all the way down the really long hall to the Youth room as some of my fondest memories from my time in the UMYF. Rest in Peace Bob and know that you made an impact in my life!
