Bob was always one of my favorite people at Guida's. He always had a smile and something witty to say. He was a treasure and one in a million. I'll miss seeing him at the Guida retiree luncheons. God bless you and yours.

Lisa and Jeff Marah

Bob was one of the first faces we saw when we first came to our church. When he would turn around and chat with us and of course make us laugh. He and Carol are truly one of the reason we stayed at our church. Such a warm welcome and laugh every Sunday,
My condolences to you Carol. We will miss Bob dearly. Love, Jeff and Lisa Marsh
