    candle 7My deepest sympathies to Diana and the entire family. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Bob at Widmer’s, and later as a customer of his business. He was a great guy who was easy to like. I know he will be missed by many.

    candle 7I will always love and miss my big brother, Bob. Family meant a lot to him. He would often provide those of us without the assets a place to stay in destination vacation spots in order for all of us to be together. He had a big and generous heart for those he loved.
    As a teenager in the late 50’s he had an old Dodge or Plymouth that didn’t have a backseat, just a place for me to stand and hold the back of the front seat as a little kid. I recall many of these outings! I missed him so when he left for college as I will miss him now. He once jokingly said that it was tough to always be the one who provided all the fun. He spoke the truth.
