  1. He was also a wonderful Great Uncle! Very kind and funny! He will be missed by all, especially by his brother my Papa who talks about him frequently. They had wonderful memories together. Melanie Cahoon

  2. It was always a joy to be around my loving uncle. Engaging, energetic, brilliantly funny, inquisitive and absolutely devoted to his brothers and his family. It was always clear how much he loved my Dad and now they are both sitting and chatting it up in heaven. Telling God a few funny stories. My heart and prayers are with all who share in celebrating his life in memory.

  3. My mother Linda spoke of you often, and even though we didn’t see each other all the time, the was always a strong sense of family, a handshake and a big hug. Your laugh, stories and wisdom will be sorely missed by all, Papa(Dick) is going to miss you so much. Say hi to Dave for us, see you later, Brian Miller

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with you on your loss! I knew Bob years ago and worked with him on many ocassions purchasing equipment and his consulting services through RBC Systems and tapping into his immense knowledge of the HVAC discipline. He was a giant in his own way, always willing to help and lend his expertise to all who asked. My life was richer for having know him and I will never forget him. Thank you Bob, you were a dear friend. God speed! Nick Manzi.

  5. We are very sorry for your loss. Bob sounds like a very special person, but I’m sure you have some wonderful memories to help you through this tough time.
