Some people knew him by the name Scout Master Bob, the former leader for Troop 141. Some knew Bob from the Prairie Riders Snowmobile Club, where they enjoyed various activities together. Most knew that Bob loved to spend time outdoors, going fishing, hunting and spending time at the cabin in Wisconsin. It’s safe to say that all knew Bob as a friend.

Rodney Nofsinger just messaged me about Bob.
I cried the whole remembrance video seeing Bob and your family pictures.
Deb, you and Bob were one of my favorite couples to hang out and ride with in Belvidere.
I would have flown up for the weekend if I had heard earlier.
I give you all my tears and love as I sit crying while typing….
As an old and dear friend from the past, you of course can contact me anytime!! Email me for my # if you like.

My love and heartfelt prayers for you and your family.

We are heartbroken to hear about Bob.we have known him for a very long time. We will miss his booming laugh and seeing him out and about. He especially liked to tease Clayton about how much his dog liked the political signs in the yard. He will be missed. Prayers to your family. Peace.

Clayton and Sandy Stevens 2021-04-23T19:51:01

Bob… If you’re listening, you know my heart hurts. Losing you dropped me to my knees. We go back a long way, you and I. I had your back, and you proved time and again that you had mine. You and Deb raised two awesome kids in Erin and Eric. They won’t let you down now, and neither will I. Just like there’s an empty spot at Zeke Night, your leaving left a permanent hole in me, but we’ll figure things out. Until I see you again on the other side… stay outta trouble. — Zeke
