Sending Deepest sympathies to your family. Bob will always be remembered for his strong connection to the community. Will always remember all the memories made riding on his school bus.
Fond memories of Bob driving our school bus, their landmark round barn, and long-time friends of our late parents – Howard & Hazel Eves.
