Messages & Condolences

From Sean Williams...

Bob welcomed me to the “Pill Hill” neighborhood by walking his dog to my gate and saying hi. After his dog passed away he would continue his pattern, greeting our family-member golden retriever. He said it helped his grieving. He was a cordial gentleman to me and I will remember his visits.

From Judy Chadwick...

“Bob” was an active member of the Lawrence Music Club for many years. Because of his great love for opera, he annually enjoyed preparing and performing opera arias on his clarinet, always giving a synopsis of the opera. He was regularly accompanied by Winnifred Gallop, who would often play her own arrangement condensed from the orchestral score. Bob was a gentle, soft-spoken man who was deeply committed to his musical organizations and will be missed by many.

From Sharon D. Learned...

Such a wonderful musician and human being. I enjoyed playing with him through the years in the Lawrence City Band and recently in the New Horizons Band. So many good conversations at the Lawrence Music Club. With deepest condolences,
