To Bob's family: I just learned of his death. I am so sorry for your loss. I gave your dad/grandfather massages for years and thought of him as more than just a client. I visited him in the nursing home up until Covid and then of course I couldn't see him anymore. He always talked about his love for his family and told wonderful stories about all of you. He loved you all so very much. I will miss his jokes and talking to him for sure as I know you all miss him. Mary Ann Geda

Dear Bob's children. I have so many fun fond memories of Bob. I worked with him at UPPCO, also bought the east Houghton duplex from him in 1985. I remember your mom was the artist. I was sorry to hear a few years ago about his hospital mishap. I wanted to visit him over the last year, but of course with Covid restrictions....couldn't. I remember him as a good, fun friend. My sympathies. Jon Lehtinen
