    • In our youth playing driveway basketball Robert was nicknamed Whitey
      which became his tag for years. Always a smile and a snide comment or two made his company enjoyable. Mick Bannon

    • Uncle Bob was a character. He could tease the heck out of Mom – Jean and Hilda. He loved the Packers – and in my Christmas card (which he just signed Bob) – he would send a Packers schedule. Of course – I had already sent a Vikings Schedule. When I saw him last – he told me what was on his bucket list – seeing his granddaughters graduate – he did – go across the new Stillwater bridge (which we will in your honor) and for the Packers to be in the Superbowl. But – not in 2018 – cause he wasn’t going to pay that much money for a ticket – but – in the next breath- he said the new stadium is awesome. A great man – loved his family. I will miss my Christmas card from Bob. I am thinking about a Ford………
