My fond memory of Bob is the story’s he could tell me of the way things were in the Hollister , Branson community before all the new roads , overpasses and shopping malls. When there wasn’t all the neon lights and Rhinestone and glitter. His story of raising a family and working hard is an honorable one , a simple man. Our son became part of his story when he married his granddaughter Chelsea. We are very fortunate and blessed to know and be a part of his family now. We are sorry for family’s and the community’s loss. A good man
