    Dear Christine and Family,I’m so sad to learn of Bob’s passing. He would always gave me a hearty welcome, when I would see him at the Moose. A few I was able to play with him or against him at horseshoes. lol, it was more fun being on his team … Please feel and accept my most heartfelt sympathies and condolences. From a fellow Moose Brother, George L.
