My condolences to you, Lea, and to all Bob’s family. I had the privilege of teaching with him at Travis and enjoying some of his delicious barbecue in your backyard. I know you have many wonderful memories which will help sustain you through this difficult time.
My Heartfelt Condolences to you Robbie and all the family. May God bless and keep you during this time of sorrow and give you peace.
Lea and family: Our prayer and hope is that God’s grace and comfort will be sufficient for you all during this season of sadness, Bob was a servant of the Lord, a good friend and a good man. Nos conhecemos Bob em Julho, 1991 no Brasil quando participamos juntos no trabalho missionario. Assim comecou nossa amizade e logo depois com Lea. Sentimos por ele ter-nos deixaido tao cedo, mas sabemos que em breve nos veremos . Oramos para o consolo de Deus sobre voce Lea e toda a familia. Com amor.
We have enjoyed Bob and Lea’s friendship and
certainly know Bob is missed by us all but is
Now in Gods loving care,
Rob and Jen , Dona and I are so sorry for the loss of your father 🙏🙏. I was a year ahead of your dad at Tascosa high but everyone will always remember Trook cabinet 👍.
I had the privilege of having Bob as a friend for almost 40 years. I will miss him greatly but am very comforted that he is at peace in heaven with a glorified body in the presence of Jesus. He spoke often in the last few weeks that he was ready to go be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Prayers for Lea and kids and grandchildren.
Rob and Jen, Sorry to hear of your loss. I always liked and appreciated your Dad. I know you will carry on the skills he taught you. We love you guys. Johnny and DeWanda Perdue
He was a GREAT man and proud to call him dad. Though I was a step son, he loved me like his own. I owe my career and athletic success to him. You will be missed but I will see ya again. Love you!
