    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Bob will be missed.

  2. Nancy Haskell says:

    “Uncle Bob” was a very special person. Always a smile for everyone. Although we did not see each other and the family in recent years our family often talked with Mom about her baby brother Bob and family. The Hampton Beach trips the summers in the 60’s were special times. We are sorry for your loss but know that someday we will all meet again. Till then we all have our wonderful memories of Bob.

  3. Ken & Kandi & The Fowler Family says:

    A gentle soul; Bob will be missed, by all that took the time to get to know him. His quiet manner and welcoming smile would always put you at ease.
    A family man that truly enjoyed his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He will be at peace now, back with his wife Dot and family that preceded him in death. We will say a special prayer for Bob and those that have lost his companionship.

    Sincere sympathies, Ken & Kandi, Kenny, Lia & Shannon Fowler
