Lee, so sorry for your loss. I sorry we could not be with you, but Cheryls mom passed away at the same time and we were dealing with that.Bob will be missed very much by me. I used to love to just site and listen to his stories. He had great wit and wisdom in his words, and when ever I was feeling down he would always make be smile. I have always said I would never ever tangled with him.He looked like he could stop a freight train with one swing.He had that leathery looking hide, and was one tuff old bird. But yet he would give you the shirt off his back. You are very lucky to have had a father like that.I wish I had some how figured out away to be at his service, and say good bye to a man I thought the world of. We need to get to gather, and catch up on old times. If your family needs anything, just call. You know we will be there.

Bob was a wonderful warm hearted person with a lot of great stories to share. Deepest sympathy for your great loss.
During the years I worked with vehicle registration it was enjoyable to wait on him and listen to some of those stories about the 50’s 60’s and 70’s and in later years it was great to visit about the cows and calves which brought back memories of my grandparents.
What a huge loss to the Worden community.
Willie we are so sorry for the loss of your granddad. I know you loved him very much. Our prayers are with you and Katie.

I saw the note about Homers passing in the paper today. I believe him to be the same person that I entered the Navy with about Sept 30, 1950. We went thru boot camp together and finally ended up serving together in VP 28. I saw Homer about 20 years ago in Worden.. Sorry to hear of his passing.
