Sympathy

Dear Nancy,
We were so sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. Please know our thoughts are with you and the kids.
All our prayers.
Jean and Allan Hale


Such a gentle and kind man

One of my earliest memories of Bob was him waking up Main St. in South Newport dressed in his army uniform and his duffle bag over his shoulder. I was sitting on our front porch by myself and happened to see someone walking up the street. It was Bob returning from the his service to our country. Of course grandma Dorgan lived with us. I think he must have gotten to Newport and decided to walk up to our house. I think my Mom called his Mom (Jane) and had them come there to see him. It was probably a surprise of some sort.

I never saw him angry or upset. He always had a smile for me and a gently chuckle that made you feel at home.

Nancy, Shelley, Brian, Tom & Chris – please know that you are in my prayers and I am also remembering Bob’s soul in my daily prayers.

Love you,

Cousin Jeff Kuntz
