  4. I knew Bob as a neighbor. He sat on his porch and chatted with everyone! We will all miss him very much. I wish I had a chance to know him better. RIP and thanks for your kindness in letting our dogs run in your yard. I’m sure you are in heaven eating ice cream drumsticks to your heart’s content,

  6. I had the privilege of knowing Bob. First meeting him on his daily walks with his cherished dog Gert at Pennock Park. Then in subsequent years visiting at his home in the Borough of Kennett Square. I enjoyed hearing his stories about his younger years growing up in the area. I will miss seeing him walking in the area smoking a cigar. Thanks for sharing your stories Bob.

  7. R.I.P Bob,
    I will remember the times we sat for hours at Pennock Park and walked our dogs (Gertie, Lucky and Foxy). We sat on your porch and chatted as the traffic and occasional pedestrian walked by and beeped or waved. We met in 2010 after I retired. We both were at Pennock with our pets and a conversation grew from our new friendship. We were there the day your home burned, you took that in stride. I realized that I had known David as a youngster when he came to my place to play with my son Steven, and his comment to you that my wife who is tall, he called her a big woman. We laughed. I knew Mary who was head of the BP&W as she presented their scholarship to my son Paul upon graduation in 1886. Your stories and knowledge and athletic ability were amazing and we knew so many of the same people. You spoke highly of your children and so proudly of your grandchildren. You were a dedicated husband to Mary when she was placed in a home, you cared for Don McKay when he was not well. You never asked for anything in return. You had a stubborn streak, and you were so personable and cared about others. I learned plenty in the 12 years we hung together for just a couple of hours a day. We could just talk and that is something that older men enjoy doing. I was sad when David gave me the news you passed and as I type this memory I still need a tissue handy. I wish I had been able to do more in the past few months when you became less independent, something you would never admit. No need to worry about the grass or snow now, enjoy a cigar, have a granola bar and an ice cream cone. Mary, Gertie and Topper are waiting to see you again. I hope to again someday and we will talk some more. There is so much more I could write, but those memories will stay with me. Oh, the Phillies made the World Series but lost to the Astros. God Bless my friend.
