May the good Lord welcome Deacon Bob to heaven with open arms. I will always remember him as the saint of St. John's religious education. His crying Sundays got me started teaching religion 27 years ago and I'm still loving the work. May he rest in peace.

Deacon Bob was a shining light in our church. We were so blessed to have this joyful servant of the Lord not only at St. Mark’s but also in our lives. Grateful to God for allowing our paths to cross.

Ann, to you and your family and closest friends you have our deepest sympathy.
