Although my father hadn’t been in perfect health in recent years, he did pretty well for 89. He walked with a cane most of the time, but he also drove himself to the gym three times per week and I had convinced him to start going to a personal trainer to try to improve his mobility. Perhaps optimistically, I believed that with some work, he would be capable of ditching the cane. After all, if he could walk through the house without it, didn’t it seem possible that he could take it to the next level? Maybe. Maybe.
Oh my goodness John what a beautiful tribute! My heart is so touched by your words. Smart, funny & loyal Bob deserves all these accolades and more. My most sincere sympathies to you, Ann & Randy. I know there is a huge hole in your hearts and you will be in my prayers. 💔
Such beautiful words. So sorry for your loss. It does all come down to family.
So Sorry for your loss John and this tugs at my thoughts on so many levels. I had the pleasure of having a few conversations with him in my short time working on the golf staff at Deep Springs before I enlisted in the USAF and Bobby was a remarkable man.
So sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and yours.
Oh, John...soon as my eyes are no longer filled with tears and the lump in my throat has cleared, I'll write a bit more. In the meantime, thank you for sharing with your friends and followers this beautiful accolade from a deserving son to a fine father.
John, I am so sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. I worked and played with Bobby. He was a great friend that loved everyone around him. He was a good ball player and a good co-worker. You did great HONOR to your father with these writing.. May the Lord be with you, your MOM and your family members during this time.
He is safe and well in his Savior's Arms. Prayers for peace and strength for your mom, you, and your family. Rest assured, he threw away his cane.
John this is a real honor to your dad. Everyone that was fortunate enough to know Bobby know how much he loved his family and always wanted the best for you'al. I am blessed to be able to say he and your mom was apart of my life.
You all are in my prayers.
Thank you so much for honoring your father
In a wonderful way. We grieve with you because he is gone but rejoice with you because we know where he is.
So sorry for your loss, John. Condolences to you and your family.
Thanks for sharing this very personal story. It's a cliché, but I am sorry for your loss.
May the Lord be with you and your family, John.
"Well done, good and faithful servant." As a Christian man, your father should be hearing those words at his judgment, so in the midst of your sorrow, I hope you feel genuine joy for him. He lived a long and fruitful life, and as we all must die eventually, we're blessed to know with certainty that he has crossed the finish line and this crazy rat race is finally over and he has earned his rest. When he is raised in his glorified (and ageless) body, how can we not all praise God, with our brother Bob? Thanks for posting this story, which resonates with me as my own father just turned 89 three weeks ago...
