We were Calvin members in the early 1970s and fondly remember Bob as a stalwart choir member with a wonderful voice. He always had a smile in his countenance and a willingness to help the church and its members. We offer our sympathy to his family. Pam and Leland Williams

A man that showed me what a good father and husband was suppose to be.
I still gather my kids to burn end of the year schoolwork and roast marshmallows and talk about this man who sang songs and played guitar for us.
With love and great memories
