Bob was my great uncle. He was my grandfather’s younger brother. Until he passed away he was my oldest living relative. I’m very glad that we got to see him and JoAnn last year in June 2019 before the world turned upside down. My partner and I had a lovely visit to their tree farm in West Virginia. He and JoAnn were still very independent and able to manage quite well on their farm. They were gracious and wonderful hosts and as always, great company. I have enjoyed all of our visits over the years. I’m very grateful that he was able to enjoy 92 healthy and adventurous years of life!
