We lost a great man, husband, father and a very good friend and a tremendous therapist, who touched so many lives, even now. Times shared we be cherished. Memories will keep him a part of us. Now heaven is his home, a life eternal and incorruptible! May God comfort all who mourn with the hope that God has given through faith in Christ! Bob is a believer and now is a receiver of God's promise in Christ!

On Sunday morning, my sweet friend and husband went home to be with the Lord. I can hardly imagine life without him. I cling to the promise that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. Kerry and Charles, Meghyn, Ally, and Kady will miss him very much! We loved to do things as a family and now a large part of our family will be missing. We will be relying on extended family, loving church family, and caring neighbors to help us through the next days, months, and years! Please know that your prayers are very important to us and your friendships just as important! Thank you for everything! Dawn

I grew up with Bobby and his brother Dean playing baseball in Juniata,Altoona. He was a great kid and one heck of a ballplayer. I was shocked to read of his passing. My Condolences to Robert's Family. May God comfort your family in this time of sorrow and grief.

I just met Bob on Thursday when a colleague introduced us. He had such an impressionable warmth. He was one of those people that you just really liked immediately. My sincere condolences to those left behind who are grieving this loss.


After a lifetime of struggling I asked the Lord to help me find a Christian counselor. The Lord led me to Bob. As one of his clients for nearly 12 years, he never gave up on me. With his great wisdom, humor, and most of all his extensive biblical guidance, I was finally set free. He knew and loved the Lord like no one else I've ever known. I will be forever grateful to him. He will be so missed by me and countless others.

I had only met with Bob a few times, as he was my new therapist. He had such a warm heart. He would listen and never judge. The stories he would tell were so witty and comforting. He will be deeply missed by his patients. I am honored to have met him. My dearest of sympathies to his family.
