It was s good to see you at the reunion. I praise the Lord we have these reunions, as we never know when another classmate will slip away. Bob it must of been your time. God is watching over the loved ones you left behind. I am sure you are looking down and saying you have the "Time of your Life" In Memory of a special perosn. Love from a classmate...Glenda Smith Lucero

I'm thankful that I was able to see Bob at the reunion. It was fun to talk about the last 30 years!

I didn't get the chance to really know Bob until reunion.

My wife Karen and I started to hang out and do things with Bob and Wendy right afterward. I feel so lucky to have had that opportunity. One thing that we both noticed about Bob, he never talked about 'me' or 'I' it was always 'we' or 'us.'

He was the most unselfish person I know. My life, and I'm sure yours, was so much better having Bob as a friend. We will both miss him so very much, but will smile every time we think of him.

It was so great to see Bob and to meet Wendy at the reunion; what a shock to hear he's passed on! Bob came to Hoover School in 5th grade right after I did. I remember a lot of things about Bob, but what I remember most is he was as smart as a whip - especially when it came to math, and if he ever said anything spiteful, sarcastic, or negative [like some of us do], I never heard it. What a great guy!

I don't know what to say. I didn't know Bob in school but got to know him and Wendy at the BBQ and had a great time talking to him. He seemed so happy with how his life was going. I have thought about him often in the weeks since the reunion,and although I didn't know him well I still feel I have lost a friend.

I'm sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He lived two doors from our house on Lynnwood when he moved into our neighborhood. OMG... that was going on 40 years ago! One time we were playing catch with the softball. I fired one halfway down the street just when Bob turned his head to look at something. The ball connected his head with a "thunk". As soon as he came to, he was fine. It was good to see him at the reunion. He'll be missed!
