Bob was a long time member of Eden UCC in Chicago. He was always happy to see his fellow Christians at services and enjoyed the fellowship at the church. He will be missed at Eden.

I knew Bobby as a rangy youth fifty years ago, so it was momentarily disconcerting to see the recent photo of him, in which he bears a resemblance to my late beloved Uncle Fred. But on reflection it is not surprising at all to see Bob, with his sweet temperament and kind spirit, looking happy and avuncular as a mature man. Requiescat in pace. I offer my condolences to his family. I am glad to have been his friend.
