I just found out that Chappy Bob went to be with the Lord. I had lost contact with him through the years. He was one of the best of my students at National Camping School, Chaplains Section, Northeast Region Boy Scouts of America. He was a good man. My belated sympathy to his family. May his soul dwell with the blessed!

Sharing my deepest condolences to Scott, Shelly, Ava and the entire family.  I am sorry for your loss and pray that you all find peace in your memories.

Debbie, Joni, Scott, and family, our hearts are breaking for you. Bob was an incredibly loved man. Always brightened up the room he was in. We enjoyed being around him and have some of the most fond memories with him. He was so funny and so full of life, and love. I will forever remember him as the guy from Chapter VII who first made me feel welcomed. I remember feeling very out of place as the new guys wife, and somehow Bob must have known, because he came over and stood with me and started talking to me. I’m not always easy to talk with because I’m usually to shy, but he made me feel at ease. He was my first friend I made with the band. God bless your entire family. I pray you all can find comfort Knowing that Bob is in heaven. All our love, Samantha and Family The Thompson Family

Worked with his son-law at Loysville Youth Development center. Talked to him many times at Walmart in Carlisle when he was shopping, was always smiling and will be missed!  Sorry for your loss and RIP Robert!

Debe and Family. It has been a blessing to have known him all this years. From the time we were neighbors on pine rd to the last 3 years as camping neighbors. He will be so missed by many that known him. The entire family is in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss Debe! Just take comfort in knowing he is no longer in pain & enjoying the streets of gold with his loving Heavenly Father! John & I are praying for the whole family!

Bob and I both graduated from Bulldog High. He was a great man and always humble. Bob was very person oriented and so it is no surprise that he shared his caring skills by being a teacher. We would talk shortly, and he would never complain of his health. He loved people and he loved God most of all. I pray for the family and will miss his smile and friendship. I am thankful for his service to humanity. Peace with God my brother.

So sorry to hear of Bob's death.  He was a very good teacher at Big Spring and many students were the benefactors.  As a former district level administrator at Big Spring I can attest to his service to the school district and throughout the community.  He was always positive with a sense of humor and a friend to all.My condolences go to his wife Deb who was one of my "favorite" students.

Dear Debe, So sorry for your loss.   Our prayers are with you during this grieving time.Peace,
