Thank you Bob for being a friend to me for over 16 years. We would sit outside on break and he would be playing his computer bridge game and we would talk about many things. He was funny and insightful. My prayers to his family.

I found a mother and her 2 kittens on my property I started to feed them manage to catch them and had them spayed through APL all females. The mother which I named Olive Oil because she was so thin ran off. Fluffy and Sweet Pea remained (outside cats) Fluffy got sick and died. Concerned about Sweet Pea meeting the same fate or a predator getting her, I asked Bob to adopt her, he did he saved her life. Several of Bobs cats that passed on have been put to rest here on my property. He was so good to the animals.

One New Years Eve years ago my supervisor had tickets to see "CATS" at the Fox Theatre in St Louis and couldn't use and gave to me. Called Bob first to see if he would go. To my surprise he said yes. It was hard to get Bob to go somewhere. We drove down saw the Broadway show and drove back we had a great time.

When I realized that Bob was taking his laundry mat, I offered for him to do it at my house. He took up my offer. My 4 dogs would get so excited when he got here. Bob would have a slim Jim stashed in his pocket would take it out and with his pocketknife cut in equal pieces with the doggy audience jumping at his feet to get a tasty morsel. While he was here we had many conversations on everything. He enjoyed coming here although I'm on the edge of town I have a nice variety if birds and other wildlife he enjoyed.

Bob was a true blue friend to me. He was the kinda guy no matter what you did in your life good or bad he was always faithful. I met Bob at the Roadhouse when I was 17, although at first thought he was crude , I soon learned how smart and comical he was. He had a way of putting people in their place without causing any hard feelings. He was a unique person.

Some of the boys stole the hood off Bobs car one winter night just to go sledding. Bob never got upset. Good memories....RIP

I remember Bob from High School Homeroom and Grant Jr. High. We sat by each other in many classes. I want to express sympathy for your loss; remembrance of him as a fun, intelligent person; and prayers for those who grieve.

I'll always remember Bob as one of the "Road House" originals . He was a kind and funny guy, with a low key personality, that was always willing to help out his friends, of which he had many . RIP

I remember Bob from our first year at Grant Jr High. What a milestone in our teen years. He was always intelligent, sweet, semi-quiet, and very laid back. RIP Bob.

Lots of great times with Bob in the 70's and 80's at the Roadhouse, Roamies, the Cellar, our House on 5th street and at softball. I remember the first time I went to the Roadhouse after work and I was too timid to go in. Bob and Noble sat on the porch with me for hours and gave me my first "Mc" nickname. One of many from Zoch. I loved listening to great music and playing cards with Bob and trying to learn bridge. He was so caring about all of the cats he rescued and just loved animals in general. He was a great friend too when my dad passed about 10 years ago. Showing up and helping out after the funeral. He managed to just show up at the tough times. It was hard seeing him get so sick so quickly. He will be missed by all of his old friends. My condolences to his sister and brother and nephews. See ya on the other side Bob the Zoch.

Bob was a Class of 68 member. Bob and I went to high school and in our younger days, we played on the Douglas Church Kourey League baseball team. We will miss you brother, and may you RIP.

I have very fond memories of my brief time living with Bob in the Swingin' Cellar. I was one of several, Gary, Rick, Cody, and others who were privileged to have lived with Bob. He is certainly an unforgettable s.o.b.
