You have been a great brother to me and brother-in-law to Larry. You have been an awesome uncle to Jay & Valerie and their kids. I am so glad you were in our lives for as long as you were. We all love you and will miss you so much. You will remain in our hearts forever!
Linda, Sue & Jim: I’m so very sorry and saddened to read of Bob’s passing. Your family was such an important part of my grade school & high school life. The last time I saw him was when he was in Welborn Hospital. I’m so sorry we never kept in touch. He will be greatly missed!
Love, Pam Mathis Johnson

I met Bob through riding horses and camping. He always had a way of making you laugh and smile. I have many memories of him of our camping and trailriding days and considered him and Linda good friends. As life does…we all took different paths and lost contact…it’s sad that happened, but in my mind and my memories they both are some of the finest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. Linda, Stephanie and the rest of the family…my sympathies go out to you all. And to Bob….I hope you are riding tall in the saddle, never lose your smile and humor and Happy Trails my friend….untill we all meet again.
