My condolences to Bob’s family. When I last saw Bob at a Sexton class of ’65 reunion, he spoke of Blake and Laura in proud and loving terms. He will be missed.

My sincere condolences to Bob’s family. He was old school in his excellent work ethic and fairness. We were always glad to see Bob when he came to help us at our homes, over a 30 year time span. Clearly a thoughtful, sensitive person. Rest well, hard worker.

To Bob’s family ~ Please accept my condolences on your loss. I knew Bob through my dealing with him as a roofer. He was a consummate professional, and the best roofer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I will remember him with fondness, and refer to his work with the greatest respect and admiration.

With sincere regards and sympathy,

Diane Wing
