    To Bob’s family
    We remember Bob with so many memories, such as Jack
    receiving a certificate from Bob for bar tending. Our trip to
    Ely, Mi and him catching the biggest bass. Watching him
    in the parades, decorating the hall and many more.
    We share your sorrow for a wonderful person.
