I am very sorry to hear of Uncle Bob's passing. As my brother Gary mentioned, he and his wife Aunt Barbara offered to take in us when our mother passed in 1968 and then take in Alan many years later during our father Norman's (Bob's younger brother) illness in the 80s. I always enjoyed visiting with Uncle Bob, especially playing tennis with him and his buddies in Swampscott and Marblehead. He was a kind and caring soul and I will greatly miss him.
The best memories is all of them, but in 2019, we were able to make the family reunion with our kids in Massachusetts, and he watched all the cousins play, I remember him saying this is good. During the years, Bob always said to take photos and ask us to send them to him, so he can make a portraits. He showed us so much love and will forever be missed. We love you so much.

The Hatchouel family has many great memories with Uncle Bob (and Auntie Barbara). We send our condolences to the entire family, which is one of the largest families we had the pleasure of sharing good times with. Praying you find comfort and peace in the many cherished memories. With love and sympathy, Colette Hatchouel Ford and family.
Sorry for the loss of your Dad, Bobby, Eddy and Judy. I had the pleasure of spending some time with him recently and learning more about him and the great work he did creating our family tree and leaving that with us as his legacy. He and your Mom also were a great help to our family when our Mom and Dad passed away, caring for me and my brothers both in 1968 and 1981-1985. May he rest in peace, God Bless you. -- Gary G.
