    Bob was an unforgettable gentleman! Many fun memories of him from our silver sneaker classes at the community center. He was known for "Bob's College of Useless Knowledge," but I don't think he really realized how much we learned from it. He always made everyone laugh with his jokes, spam calls, and just stories of growing up. I will cherish the cookie recipe (from his mother) that he gave me and I made for him and will continue to make every Christmas. The Raisin Raggedy Ann's are my favorite cookie now. I was blessed to have met Bob and will never ever forget him. May you find comfort in the memories of Bob that you have in your heart ❤️ With prayers and thoughts, Lynn Dempsey
