Bob always displayed a "Spirit of Joy" to all that he met! He was always happy to meet people and friends .If all people were like Bob was this would be a better place to live,I'm retired now but back in the 1980's I would pick Bob up on the battle creek bus,Every day was a good day for Bob.And if you had a bad day driving the bus he would get on and make you just as happy as he was.Then the rest of your day went good.RIP my friend.

Bob always displayed a "Spirit of Joy" to all that he met! He was always happy to meet people and friends over a cup of coffee and loved to talk about Jesus and the love that we should show others. He is in heaven and is one of the Great Cloud of witnesses!

We will see you on the other side BOB!

Your Friend Always!
