thoughts and prayers
My sincere sympathy is extended to Bob’s friends and family. I remember walking to Bob (Sr.) and Mary’s house and playing with Rosemary, Becky, and Roy after visiting Aunt Bessie with my Mom. That was back in the 60’s. My Mom was Luann (Shuster-Wiley) Francis, and her mother was Viola (Wiley-Nye) Shuster. May God comfort you all. You are not forgotten.
My condolences go out to all Bob’s family and loved ones. He was a wonderful man and will be missed by many!
Grandpa, I will miss you tons, and you will never be forgotten. I love you!
I will miss Bob’s wit on Facebook.
