  1. While Bob thought he was a good, average golfer, most of us know better. Just ask the tree to the left of #7 tee box. Bob will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Derek, Corey, Aubrey, Deborah, and the rest of his family. The Walkers

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. It’s been a tough road and you all lovingly helped him travel it and loved him til the end. You all are in my thoughts and prayers as you go thru the next few days and weeks ahead. Losing a loved one is such a heart break.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear bob has passed. I worked with him at COB. He was a good man. I enjoyed working with him and his crazy stories. Soon after I met him a friend of our’s mom passed away and I asked him if he was going to the funeral and he said no. He doesn’t go to funerals. He said, Kelle I wouldn’t even go to your funeral. It became a joke with us. A few years later I asked him if he would go to my funeral now. He said yes. He would definitely go to my funeral now. I guess that meant I passed some bazaar test of his. lol My heart goes out to his family. He talked about his kids all the time. And the crazy, unorthodox relationship he had with his ex. Rest in peace my friend.

    Michael and I are so very sorry for your loss. We offer our sincere condolences and prayers to you and your family during this time.

  7. I’m so sorry for the family’s loss. I had the privilege of knowing Bob for 30 years and enjoyed a lot of great family memories. I often sought his advice and respected his wisdom. I really enjoyed going to Beacon Baptist church with Bob when we visited the family the last few years. My thoughts and prayers go out to Aubrey, Corey, Derek and Debbie.

  8. To Bob’s Family,

    We were so sorry to learn of Bob’s passing and we are praying for the family; especially at this time. I enjoyed working with Bob over the years…starting with his days at TAMU Fiscal Operations back in the 80’s. Bob was a good co-worker, good friend and fun to be around.

    We are praying that in this difficult time, you’ll be surrounded by God’s love and filled with peace that only He can give. We are so sorry for your loss, Lou Ann & Ross Arth

  9. I worked with Bob at EDS. He was a great member of the audit group and a pleasure to travel with on engagements. One of the most memorable audits was a trip to San Diego. I heard lots great stories about your family while strolling the boardwalk after dinner. Bob had a great sense of humor and a laid-back attitude. He will be missed. Sorry for your loss.

  10. I am so sorry to learn of Bob’s passing, way too soon. He and I worked together years ago at EDS and I always appreciated his honesty and humor. His family is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
