This Obituary Has 5 Condolences

  1. I am very sorry about your loss.
    I have been taking care of Bob since March of 2001. We were just recently reminiscing about that the other day, that we went to different agencies together.
    Bob was to me like a little brother.
    I loved him dearly and miss him greatly.
    R.I.P. Bob now you’re free.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing. Robert was such a good man. Roy and I appreciated being one of several at church who got to know Robert by driving him in his special van to Church. He was always at the back of the chapel to greet me. In my last days with Roy, Robert and Roy would sit by each other in their wheelchairs.

    I just watched the YouTube tribute to “Uncle Bobby.” How wonderful to see Robert’s service to our Country and his life before disease deteriorated his body. Memories of the same flood in as my Roy had to experience this.

    I know both Robert and Roy are fully restored with very special missions in Heaven.

    I know my handsome Roy welcomed Robert to Heaven. How fun to think of Robert
    with all his dark beautiful hair, standing tall and walking. Robert talked about having a beautiful wife some day.

    I know he will now for all Eternity. I share my love and some tears of joy that we got to know Robert. With love, dear Robert, until we meet again in a twinkle. Hug everyone a little tighter.

    Love, Rexene Robbins

  3. We will miss you Bob and the love that you gave to those around you. You will now experience the fullness of Christ’s love for you. Thank you blessing my life with your example and courage.
    Love you brother,
    Brother Savio

  4. Robert will be missed. I was privileged to work with him on some of his dental needs and grateful for the chance to get to know him over the years. He was always in good spirits (despite being in the dental office) and was very kind to me and our staff.

    I was saddened to hear of his passing, but am happy that he can be free from his physical ailments. My condolences to the Iacobbo family.

    Until we meet again- rest in peace, brother.

  5. Bob will be missed in our Church congregation. We were blessed to get to know Bob while working with him in the Children’s Primary. He was adored by the children who were always looking out for him. It was a joy to witness their interaction and see the love expressed. We send our heartfelt condolences to Bob’s family.
