My prayers go out to his sons and grandchildren. May they find peace knowing that Bob is with his deeply-missed wife and knowing that he can rest pain free.

I have many fond memories of Bob. We played football together at Whitmer High School. He was a tough outside linebacker until he got a concussion his junior year. I recall like it was yesterday when he drove his late model Chevy that had a hole in the floorboard; I could see Laskey Rd. beneath my feet before we headed out to see his Grandmother (Bush ca ?) who lived on or near LaGrange Street. And then in '72 or 3 when we sat on his porch and drank a couple beers and listened to the rain come down before driving here and there in his '54 (or '64) white Corvette.
Bob and I joined the Marine Corps in the buddy system after graduating in 1968. We went to San Diego for basic training where he saved my behind after I lost my pillow before nighttime inspection; he stole one from another recruit. We went to Vietnam in '69 but in different directions. I was his best man at his wedding in 1971(2) when he married Sandy. In the years since we saw little of each other as life gets busy working and raising a family. In 2013 he came to my brother's funeral and we had a good talk of life as we knew it. Dennis was also a Marine and met up with Bob in Okinawa. They must have had a good time because Dennis lost a stripe.
I often have and l always will think of Bob. He was a loyal friend who will be missed but not forgotten in my heart, soul and mind. With tears and a smile I conclude, "Semper Fi, Bob". Always faithful.
