  1. Jean, Robbie, & Donna,
    I was so sorry to hear about your loss. Bob was a delightful man with a big smile & contagious laugh. I have fond memories of our families spending time together. I have no doubt that Bob, Rodger, & my dad are reunited in Heaven & laughing about old times. I pray that God will carry you through your time of grief. With much love,

  2. I had the wonderful honer of working with Bob at the city of San Clemente from 1989 to 1997 and I cant believe he is gone. I have thoughts and prayers to Jean and Rob Jr. and there family in this time of sorrow. I will always remember him and know he is in a better place now with GOD. Bob, I miss you and loved your guidance, much love and prayers, John Littlepage and my Family.

  3. We all wish we could be there with you during this time of sorrow, but you are in our thoughts and our prayers. We honor Jake’s memory as a wonderful man, husband, father, grandfather, and United States Marine.

    Love from the Zeigler family John, Pat, and Steve

  4. Bob will be dearly missed by everyone. He was an exceptional man and had the ability to make everyone who he came in contact with, feel comfortable and at ease due to his kindness and understanding of human nature. I don’t think that there was anything mechanical that he couldn’t fix. He once rebuilt the carburator on my old Cadilac and it is still running well at over a hundred thousand miles! We laughed about it the last time we talked as he insisted that it was just luck, but I knew better. In his humble way, he insisted that it was my care and driving style. That’s how he was.
    Rest in peace, Bob. The Lord is with you now. Our prayers are for you and your family tonight and always.
