Eddy & I worked at DDO together. I do not recall a day that Bob either said something or did something to make the crew laugh! Huge shoes to fill! He will be missed but never forgotten!

I always tried to visit Bob when I came to Ogden. He always had great get-togethers every summer. I was married to his brother Alfred until his death. He will be missed by many friends and relatives. I send my condolences to his two brothers and many other relatives. Love Always Barbara Eddy - Colorado

My grandpee was the greatest grandpee a girl could ask for! He was stubborn on the outside but so tender hearted on the inside. He was so selfless and would drop anything he was doing to help someone out. He had a wonderful humor that made us all laugh. His home was everybody's home. Grandpa always had candy for us. He is an amazon person! He gave so much love and never asked for any in return. Right now he is probably having some coffee and cinnamon rolls with his family. He has a special place in my heart and it will always be there. Grandpee I love you more than anything and I want to thank you for all you have done for me and my family. I kiss your picture everytime I get in my car and my new favorite sent is vanilla. I hope your building something up in heaven. I love grandpee rest in peace. Your dusty marble head
