Bob was a wonderful friend of our family. We always enjoyed his stories of his teaching days and will remember his talents as well. He painted such a beautiful picture in his Bob Ross class. We're going to miss our conversations and especially our friendship. We know he is with Stella now and at peace. We are sorry for your loss of a wonderful step-father and brother.

My husband, Greg, and I were very sorry to learn of Bob's passing. I had the privilege of teaching with Bob as both 5th and 6th grade teachers at Beaty Warren Middle School. As 5th grade teachers, we taught on the same team. Bob was kind, caring, and had a generous heart. I know he enriched the lives of many of his students who will never forget him. He had the best laugh!!! Bob and Stella were such a special couple, a joy to know. It is heartwarming to know they are together again. Am grateful to have known Bob as a colleague and a friend. I will never forget him. Our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
Most sincerely,
Pam and Greg Lyle
