This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. Sending our sincere sympathy to the family as we learned of Bob’s passing. We met Bob and Beverly in 1965 while stationed at Fort Carson. There are many memories of time spent playing cards, the guys fishing, Bob’s first pair of waders that he proudly wore walking down the street to show them off. They were good people.
