Carolynn, Liz,Erica, Gordon and Family,
May you sense God’s Comfort in a way that brings rest for your hearts. Stan and I send our deep sympathy.
Bob will be remembered for his love of life. We loved listening to him tell his stories of his adventures or from childhood and of his love for woodworking, showing his goods ( which we were blessed to receive some of his works) my dad, Andy loved sharing back and forth with Bob. We had great gatherings! Memories will always be in our hearts. We love you all and will stand beside you all! Sending loving hugs to you all. May Bob rest in peace.

I had the honor and privilege to work with Bob for nearly 30 years. Bob was one of those people who always put others before himself. He taught me how important it is to always put your clients needs before your own and to always be kind to everyone and to never judge a book by its cover. Bob will be greatly missed by all. Our prayers go to Carolynn and the family. When you lose someone you love, you will never get over it, but we pray that you get through it.

I met Bob and Carolynn in the fall of 1983 upon my arrival in Bismarck. Little did I know the impact that they would have my life. My first memories of Bob were all positive, as he was managing a God Father’s Pizza in Bismarck and we spent more than a few Friday nights with family and friends devouring the wonderful pizzas Bob turned out and he also drew a magnificent pitcher of beer. Later he joined the Equitable Life Insurance company and Linda and I were one of the first to purchase a life insurance product from Bob. About 8 years later I was out of job and Bob thru me a life line and took me under his wing at Equitable. Bob had immense knowledge of financial products and how those products would best serve a client. He always stressed the highest ethics in working with customers. His mentoring of me resulted in 17 year career in Financial Services. I appreciate all he did to help me get started. The lasting tribute is that Bob leaves behind is the great family the he and Carolynn built. Bob will always remain in my thoughts
