We are so sorry to hear about Bobby. He always had a smile and a funny story. Some of us only got to see him at the Mcphee Christmas party's but we always looked foward to seeing him and his onion dip! We're very sorry we couldn't make it to the services. We're together in Maine right now remembering and telling great Bobby and family stories. Bob, we will all miss you. Rest in peace.

Dear Anne, Diane and families,
You are in my thoughts during this sad time.
May the happy memories you shared together give you comfort.

I remember many wonderful times our families shared together growing up as neighbors.
Cookouts, 4th Of July fireworks, Green Harbor beach trips, visiting Nana and just playing and being kids together.
Bob was a big part in that with his easy going way and humor.

With my sincere sympathy and love,
Kimberly (Hester) Harmon

I was truly heartbroken to hear about Bob's passing. He was a former co-worker of mines for only 2 1/2 years and yet it felt like I knew him longer than that. He was always so kind, funny and encouraging. He was definitely a humble man that never let life bring him down. He will truly, truly be missed.

My deepest condolences to his entire family and friends.
