I knew Bob, from church at Dighton UMC and enjoyed fellowship with him and his bride. I will truly miss him and will always keep him in my heart. Looking forward to being at church, with Bonnie. My most cherished memory of Robert was his firm but soft hands, when I shook his hand when we greeted each other. Rest in Peace, Sir. Lovingly, Greg and Connie.
