Trish, James, John and Ed (Jody, his grandchildren Cassandra (John) Gage, Brandy and Alisha also his brothers Richard (Cinda), Darrell (Diane), Gary (Rose) and David, along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

In his last few years, Bob's greatest pleasure was visiting the dog park with his babies.

Bob will be greatly missed by his family, many friends and his beloved pets.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the many medical professionals that have assisted Bob throughout the course of his illness.
