Bob was the Father of my FDSE schoolmates Jeff, Don, Laura and Craig. He was the Uncle of my 16th St. neighborhood family Doug, Marilyn, Jim, Jerry, John, Joe and Mary Jane Not a bad one in the bunch. He brought a foosball table and jukebox to their 16th basement and us kids thought that was heaven. Good memories and prayers to you all. You are all always welcome in Spirit Lake. Mark Brown FDSE '80.

CandleBob will be greatly missed. Bob gave me my start into collecting jukeboxes and 45rpm records. He was always very kind to take the time to help another person out; for he was indeed a people person. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and friends.

CandleBob has been my Messenger customer for 13 years snd his passing is a shock. I remember him leaving for coffee just as I was delivering his paper. He would always stop the car and ask how I was doing in that nice deep voice. It meant alot that he took that time to ask. My prayers and sympathy to his children and the rest of the family.
