I will always remember Bob. He was a happy, funloving man. He lived across the street from us in Prior Lake and was always teasing us girls (as my mom sherry said). I will never forget the night we went snowmobiling and I rode with Bob we flew off the snowmobile and he landed on top of me on the ice, it hurt but we laughed it off (and never let him forget it)! It was just one of our many trips on the lake. I will keep your family in my prayers. Sorry for your loss.

There are so many memories bowling trips, snowmobile trips, Viking games, garage patrol, Ice fishing on Milacs, and times on Prior Lake, when he moved to NC.every time we talked I would ask hey Bubba when are you coming back home you will always have a place to stay at my home and he would just laugh and say I donít know Steve. He came back and Bob stayed with us we had a great time enjoying his laughing and most important his friendship and sharing every day together.

Bob was our neighbor across the street in Prior Lake for ten years. He was a jolly, joyful fellow and loved teasing our daughters. We use to have firework wars on holloween and shoot firecrackers at each others roof tops. When we had the big snowstorm on holloween weekend, the snow banks were so high, we couldn't even see Bob across the road shoveling I'll never forget when we took him snowmobiling up in the Wolf Lake Hills and he went off the trail and took down a little pine tree. He will definetly be missed by alot of his friends. He will alway be in our hearts. Larry & I are real sorry for your loss. Larry & Sherry Anderson

I have some memories of Bob. I remember going to his house when he lived in Prior Lake and having a big family BBQ. That was alot of fun and some good family memories. I also remember when I was taking care of him for his last few weeks of his life to get to know him better. He was asking if I could get him some cheese curds from my husband's work, so the next day I got him some fresh cheese curds. It was like I gave him gold. He really enjoyed the hard candies, Dots, and popsicles. I would ask him everyday how he was doing and if I needed to get him anything. He would talk about his family and loved when family and friends would come visit him. He will be missed by all. I am glad that I got to know him better. Everyone is in my thoughts and prayers. He also made a lot of new friends with my co-workers. Tammy Williamette
