    My deepest sympathy to the family of this wonderful man. I got to know Bob when he would come into McDonald’s for his morning coffee.. He made me smile 😊! Watching him trying to find a parking spot that was just right for him. Sending my thoughts and prayers to his family! ❤️

    So very sad to hear of Uncle Bob’s passing, I only met him a few times, but remember him well. I also remember hanging out with Theresa when we were children. My love and sympathy to you all. Your uncle John Collins, Bob’s older brother is in fact still alive at age 92 here in Colorado. Be well.
