    candle 8I am so sorry to see this sad news. Bobby was a fixture at the Miller house when I was growing up. He and my brother Jim were great friends as were all the guys from Venice. I always enjoyed seeing Bobby and his family at different gatherings. He was always so interested to hear how everyone in my family was doing. I always appreciated his concern.
    To his family, I hope you find peace in remembering the love he shared with you and everyone who’s life he touched.

    The sad news of Bob’s passing reached me today and I am at a loss for words to sum up what a great man and friend he was to me, my brother Jim, and the entire Miller family. Bob was always able to raise everyone’s spirits with a smile, a joke or a good story. My heartfelt sympathies go out to RuAnn, children and family. Linda, Janet and Mary, and your families, know that you are all in my heart and prayers. Bob was a great, wonderful man. My sincerest sympathies to each of you.

    Dear RuAnn and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you. We have such wonderful memories of Bob from our youth. We are so grateful we got the chance to talk to him at the Venice Reunion this year. He was a great guy and we have such fun memories from our “younger” days. May God be with you and your family.

    Sorry for your loss. I just had a nice conversation with him at the Reunion. We were both part of the old Venice gang and had a lot of good times together including the lake house in Staunton. He will be missed!

    I regarded Bob as a friend of mine although he was five years younger. During the last decade as it would
    happen, I’ve seen both Don and Bob more than ever since high school days. I’m sorry both are gone now
    and wish we had some more times together. May the Peace of Christ be with these friends.

    candle 7Life is too Short. Bob’s daughter cleans house for us and we found out about his passing from her, what a shock. Bob and I hung out together many years, and had some great times, I went to his house on Klein Street so often the Davinroy family thought I was one of theirs. Will miss him and and his family that departed before. He is in our prayers. Sorry for your Loss. Ed and Christina Johnisee Class of 65.

    I am sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. Linda: I feel especially close to you. You know my brother (Bruiser) and your brother were good friends. Venice story: one day a guy came across a field shooting arrows at my friends and I. Several years later, while drinking with Bob at your house, Bob mentioned the story. I told him, “yes, I know. I was one of the guys you were shooting at.” Then we had a laugh and a refill. So sorry.
