    My family and Bobby’s had cabins on the river in Golconda and as teenagers we enjoyed many summertime activities there. I have wonderful memories from that time in my life and Bobby and his family helped make those memories. I was so sorry to hear of his death and want to extend my sympathy to his family.

    Our thoughts are with Bobs family,
    Bob and Shirley were always there for us. Bob was the most honest person I ever delt with.
    Bob and his crew built us a home in Marion in 1975/1976.
