My condolences to Bob's family and friends. I first met Bob in 1947 when I first dated his sister, Jean, who became my wife in 1951. Jean's family, Bud, Helen, John and Bob were an important part of my life. Unfortunately, my beloved wife, Jean passed away in 1986 and, because we moved to Michigan after I graduated from Law School, our visits were far too infrequent, but I fondly remember the wonderful hospitality shown our family whenever we got back to Maine. Annual vacations at the family camp at Deering Lake hosted by Bud and Helen and later, Bob and Norma would put on a lobster feast that was memorable. Especially memorable was our weeklong visit to Little Sebago Lake with my son, two daughters and two granddaughters a few years ago. We were treated like royalty by Bob and Norma and their family. I always will remember Bob's great sense of humor and his love of family and home. I recall his fondness for gardening and boating and country music. Bob had a good life but, like his sister, brother and father, their time on earth was far too brief cut short by cancer and, in Bud's case, by a tragic automobile accident. We are all better for having known this fine gentleman. Ray
