  1. To Bob’s loving family,

    I”m sorry for your loss, may God bless and keep you in his loving care.

    I knew Bob from Lifetime Learners, he was a very good and interesting man that was there to give aid to friends in need, and will be missed by many.

    It’s very sad when our loved one is taken from us, but I hope you can take comfort in knowing that he didn’t have a lingering illness.
    God was good to him in not having him suffer.
    Take comfort in remembering all of the happy times you were blessed to have with him.

    I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend his service, but he and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Worked with Robert a number of years at the Ferro Corporation in Norwalk. He was one of the most amiable, courteous and respectful of gentlemen that it was my great pleasure to work with.

  • Rita and Family:
    It seems only yesterday I was at a luncheon at LLI- we were all together enjoying each others’ company – checking on Bob’s latest paintings at the Wilton Library. I think of both Bob and Rita as special friends. Am sorry I cannot attend the service Wednesday – my prayerss and thoughts will be with all.
    Rita: eventually I plan to call you – fortunately Bob did not have a long, lingering illness which is very hard on both Bob and his family. My prayers are with all.
