  1. Uncle Bob was my favorite uncle. He was a very kind man and always a pleasure to be around. I’ll miss his jokes and just having the opportunity to converse with him. He was intelligent, insightful, wise, charming and much more. He enriched my life. No one could ask more from another person.

    My deepest sympathies to you, Helen, and all your family. I remember Bob from our days at Shaw and also spending time with him in recent years as we planned and attended our reunions. He was a very warm and kind man. I will be out of town during the visitation and service, but know that my prayers are with you.

  5. Happy Birthday in heaven dear sweet Pa. We will love and miss you forever. There is only one St. Pa. I will still play all your songs for you. In memory of the best Dad ever. Rest In Peace Pa may eternal light shine upon you forever.

    All our love,

    Anne, Matt and the girls

    Sorry to hear about Bob passing away. In fifth grade we always had fun seeing which one of us could run the fastest. Bob was usually the winner. We had fun remembering at our 50th Shaw High anniversary and I missed seeing him at the 60th. He was a kind, gentlemen even when young. Sorry to miss the funeral, but we reside in Wisconsin, but I’ve been thinking about and praying for Bob’s family.
