Our hearts and sympathy's go out for Shirly, Julie and Gregg. Bob was a great neighbor. I had many a morning coffee with Bob and of course some discussions over politics. He will be greatly missed.

Dear Bossard Family
May God bless you and keep you at this time I have many fond memories of Bob as he was caretaker of Indian run fish farm when I bought it back in 1996. He helped me in many ways and found an able successor for me when he stepped down and I enjoyed when he came to visit in his later years.His famous Deerstand is still standing and I will name it in his honor may your fondest memories get you through this time
