Bob and Leah were my Godparents. I was told that they bought me my baby bed when I was born. Bob will be missed by many people. So sorry for the loss to his family and for the town of Equality. He was one of the best.

Sorry for your loss, Bob and my dad were best friends since they were kids. Dad thought a lot of Bob, as Bob and Aunt Ella scattered dad's ashes in Saline creek. Again, my condolences.
