Bob was a special person and a great patient of our office at Mercy Eye specialist there in Nixa. He would come see us girls every week possible and bring us a tasty treat of some kind. We felt loved by Bob. He was always pretty happy guy. He will be greatly missed by several people in our building.

Bob was a great man and Marine! This old Army guy always enjoyed "discussing" our differences as a grunt or embassy guard! He will be missed by me as well as all people at Highland because he always greeted us with a smile or a Marine Salute. Semper Fi

I had the pleasure of knowing Bob through encounters at my work. He was always so kind and sweet. He always asked about my daughter and her basketball. We always talked sports when he came in. He will be truly missed!!
