Jackie Henning left a message on April 1, 2008:
Hi Susan, I just read all of the beautiful messages. He touched so many, nothing more to be said, but I'm happy I knew him. When Dan, Kristin and I first came to town, you were the first couple who welcomed us into "Michigan City Society". So many laughs, Bob expressing his "exuberance" while watching basketball, "jumping into the New Year", and July 4th at the beach when the wind sent us running from the rockets! Love to you and Am.

My Dearest Susan, Please know that my thoughts are with you ever since I heard of your loss. I got to know your husband through your involvement with the school system and all both of you did at Park School. Again, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Donald Cook left a message on March 30, 2008:
The last time I saw Bobby we were children riding bikes on Sunday afternoons picking up pop bottles for extra change. There were also the scary "B" movies we watched at night on Homer Street. Ever since then, whenever I've seen Creature from a Black Lagoon I've thought of Bobby! We moved away, grew up, moved back and lived our own lives. I'm sorry that we lost touch with each other. I'd have loved to play golf with him and swap memories about the old days. My thoughts are of those many, fun childhood memories and my prayers are for peace for those who knew and loved him.

I knew Bob by having specified Sound Technologies products for my clients, we worked together on many innovative industrial noise control solutions over the past 15 to 20 years. Bob was responsible for leading edge technical solutions, willing to create designs for new applications, based upon his confidence and his skills. His approaches were unique to the field, and his technical successes were admired. It was a pleasure having worked with Bob, and his contributions made will live on.

Very sorry to hear about the loss. I was always happy to see Bob's car pull into the lot at pott. He was always fun to talk with and often had granola to share.
susan branch left a message on March 23, 2008:
dear donna bostater please don't worry about being alone...... as you can see from this virtual wake, there are many people out there who we have known for bob for his whole fun lovin' life.... bob is everywhere i am now. he's in our home, he's in our car, he's with all of our friends and family so he's always with me.... maybe even more now..... I grieve for the loss of his companionship, his intellect, his energy, his focus, his skills, his humor,even his ability to coalesce various groups of people, but all of these qualities are just new energy surrounding us ..... so whenever I need a "bob fix" I just think about him and he's right here with me.... now bob will even be at yoga with us :)

I'm sorry for your loss. I've known Bob for about fifteen years and truly loved working with him. During one of our many golf rounds he beat me by one stroke and made me sign the payment with my name. If you do find this momento, I would love to hang this item in my office as a memory of the fun that Bob and I had over the years. We will truly miss him. Sincerely, Tim Bonn

My condolances to Susan and Amberly on the loss of Bob. Bob and I shared the same love (golf). We will miss his quick wit and humor. He was a great euchre partner or adversary. Bob will always be remembered by all of us in the class of 69' for his ability to keep us laughing.
Susan Karnilowicz left a message on March 19, 2008:
My deepest sympathy to your family, they really haven't created the words to comfort you during this time...Barb, when we bury our parents we become orphans and are heartbroken, losing Bobby has to be overwhelming, I wish I were there to wipe a tear or give you a hug, please know that our thoughta and prayers will be with you... My many memories of Bobby include his smile and as a kid he always hit us...but most of all comes the memory of when you at IU and I happened to go down your street late one night and Bobby was in the car out front, feeling no pain...I took him for coffee and breakfast before letting him go in the house, we talked and laughed, it was at this point I was able to glimpse the man he would become, kind generous and smiling. With Much Love, Sue (Daher) Karnilowicz

Susan and Amberly - My thoughts and prayers are with you. I only worked with Bob for a little over a year and I found him very fascinating, hyper, funny, VERY INTENSE, and brilliant. He took time to talk to me about the business in order to help me learn more about it. I feel honored to have known him. He was alot of fun to work with. Intense at times... but fun! He made me laugh alot.. :)
Donna Topa Beyer left a message on March 18, 2008:
What can I say? Bobby (which I always called him, he was never Bob to me) You were like a brother, I laughed, drank beer, and cried on your shoulder. We go back over twenty or more years. How about all the the times with Ronnie, Mark, and me! Say Hi, to Felix and my Mom. I will miss your smile and wit. You were one of my best friends. I will always think about you!
