Bob was so well known in Antlers. An attorney, city judge, was on the school board for years. Most of all he was my uncle. He married my aunt 10 years ago & they loved each other so much. Like most of the people in my small town, I have known him for a long time. If you knew him, you liked him. I will miss his calm presence that he brought, how him & Beau always talked about sports, & his funny personality. He was successful at everything he did. An over-achiever. As much as it breaks my heart that he is gone, I am so much more heartbroken for my aunt, his daughters, & my cousins. It's only been a year and a half since his son who I grew up with passed away. 
Bob had a massive heart attack. This is a man who has ran everyday for years. He was really in great shape. 
Celebrating his life today.
So thankful we knew him!
Miss you so much Bob!
