It was truly my pleasure to have known this sweet man. Words fail to express my sorrow for your loss. Natalie I wish you and your family peace and comfort during this difficult time. I believe he will be a guardian angel to his new granddaughter. I’m so sorry.

Natalie and family I'm so sorry for your loss. Your dad was such a fine man and a joy as a patient and will truly be missed. Thoughts and prayers

Natalie and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of need. Your father was such a sweet person and it shows through you natalie as I told him one time when I was working with him in therapy, that I know where natalie gets her kindness and compassion as it doesn't fall far from the tree. God bless you and your family.

I often would talk to Bob at Wooster Community Hospital where we both worked, he always had amusing stories to tell....very entertaining guy! My husband also worked with Bob (AKA Bob-O) at Wayne Electric and he was always one of the good guys! So sorry for your loss, I know this sadness leaves a big void in your hearts. With time, all those precious memories with bring a smile to your hearts.
