  1. Condolences to the family. I knew Bob from La Marque PD. I loved when he would come out and ride with me. He was a great guy and had a good heart. He was fun to have out with us. He was truly one of our LMPD family and he will be missed.

  2. My Uncle Bob was one of the finest men I have ever known. He was kind, generous and loving, and most of all, brought light and joy into our family 41 years ago by loving my aunt and changing her life forever. Aunt Jo, you are dear to me and my heart is with you every moment of every day. I am here for you…I love you.

  3. My prayers are with Bob’s family. I met Bob many years ago when I joined the La Marque Police Dept, and he was a good friend and mentor to me for many years. I will always cherish the memories of his smile and his words of encouragement

  4. Dear Wanda,
    Sorry to hear about Bobby’s passing. Ben (or as you may know the name “Bennie”) has told me so many stories of their youth and the fun they had growing up on the island. We hope your good memories keep you strong during this difficult time.

    Ben and Beverly Petty
  5. I have the sweetest memories of Bob and his 41-year marriage to my precious Aunt Jo. We will truly miss this gentle giant of a man.

    Aunt Jo, please know how very much I love you and am hurting for you in your time of loss.

    Andrea Garner
