The world is a much poorer place without Bob. He was a special friend, great neighbor and one of the truly Nice Guys. 'Hope Bob and Rick enjoy the view of Lambeau Field from up there.

Lori: Mere words cannot express our sorrow at your loss. Bob will truly be missed by all of us. We'll always remember all the good times we had at the '50's dance and I can't help but think that Bob and Rick are wearing their "Packers" jerseys and checking out new raffle tables somewhere. God Bless.

Bob was a great big teddy bear. I have so many great memories of him and the rest of the "gang" that I grew up with just cruising and having fun being young and foolish. He was special man and a special friend. My heart goes out to Lori and the rest of the Valk family. He will be missed terribly.

Lorin -- may God's comfort and guidance be with you and your family during this time of loss. Bob will continue to rejoice and celebrate as the Packers, Badgers, and Brewers continue to play.
