Thank you for being
the nicest man we have ever known!
Will miss you Dad. I'm glad for the time you shared with my family and for spoiling my boys. They loved their dollar store trips as much as I loved getting your souvenirs from your work travels when I was a kid.
Hot dogs and choo choo train. Best combo ever and best company ever.
All our love,
Carlos and Jackie Rodriguez
So glad we got to know Bob a little & enjoyed y’all staying with us in Hillsborough ♥️
Love all of you
Hugs & prayers, Wesley & Carole
