Dear Pat,

I am sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. I am in California now but will be back Thursday, I will see you at the wake.

Sorry to learn of his passing Patricia. My relationship with Bob goes way back to the happy times that we spent sailing and skiing. I miss those times and the occasional times we got together in our later years.

My condolences to you and your family.

Pat,
I am so sorry.
We have not seen each other since my Chicago days, but I have such good memories of meeting the Ericksons at the yacht club many a summers, and tennis and gatherings at the Chilenskas’.
Bob had a wonderful life, he is a lucky fellow. We celebrate his life!

Pat, so sorry to hear about Bob. Thomas still uses that Velcro band you gave him years ago. It does not look much better!

Condolence from June and Burt Ebanks on February 16th, 2017 2:20 pm

We are so very sorry for your loss.
Bob and I started out testing each other then as we learned to respect each other it became a deep friendship. I have missed the morning breakfasts after we retired and the phone calls since I moved away.

Pat, So sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I was out of the country and sad to have missed the services and give you a hug.

Fondly remember our many talks at Wilmot.
