    I am very sorry to learn of the passing of Bob. He was one of the first people I met when I joined the St. Charles American Legion 25+ years ago. RIP Bob. You will be missed.

    candle 7Just a word to Bob’s family, especially Evelyn and Mollie, that Bob will be in my thoughts and prayers. As St. Paul says so well “Whether we live or we die, we are the Lord’s”……..he still has his hands over our shoulder. I still remember my first time meeting him while associate at St. Charles Borromeo. He was working the front desk at the old post office on 5th street. When I was announce to go to Dutzow, he knew his sister would be my future secretary (and a good one). Little did I know he would be a fellow parishioner at St. Peter as well. God bless you all. Fr. Steve Bauer, Bonne Terre

    He always and always will be my favorite uncle. I’m going to set an extra place for him at the table on Christmas in his memory.
