    I was sad to hear of Bobs passing and then again of Sandy’s. I have a lot of fond memories of working along side Bob at many fire functions and calls. He was a great asset to the fire dept.

    After much laughing and joking I told him , I’m sure if I had a brother he would be like you . After that , Bob called me Sis. We also called him Dr. Zuke for his computer knowledge and help with those issues. He would always laugh when I would call him “brother Dr. Zuke”.
    Going to miss the laughs and fun . Mike & I always enjoyed the conversations.
    To Steve ,Alex & Chris and family you are in our prayers.
