My deepest sympathy to Joyce, Steve, Lisa, Scott & families. I will always remember Bob behind the meat counter at Kreimers; he always had a huge smile on his face & his white apron on!! A sad day for Talmage.

My sympathy to your family. Bob was such a nice man. I was at an auction for the first time and I asked him what he thought the item was worth and he told me "don't pay any more than $25"! And he was right! I have never forgotten that. He will be missed.
