Bob was a good friend, I only knew him for a couple years until Judy passed away. I was their Bishop, and we loved having them in the Harrisville 10th ward. I got to speak with Bob a few week before he passed away, every time he mentioned Judy he would choke up. He loved and missed her deeply. What an honor for me, to be among his friends. He and Judy both were sincerely loved and left a lasting positive mark on all of us that knew them. Very happy to celebrate his life now and I'm giddy just thinking about him being reunited with Judy and how that moment must have felt. Love to this family.

My prayers are with you and your families at this difficult time. We are so blessed to have the knowledge of eternal families and I am sure the reunion between your parents was very sweet.

Robert was a very good friend and a very exceptional example of what Christ expects his servants to be like. His concern for others was an example I will not forget. He has been missed ever since he and Judy moved from the ward. My condolences to all his family and friends.
