Worked with Bob in HR. He was such a sweet guy. Always had a joke to tell! He will be missed but is in a better place now.

As an avid reader, “Bobby” as I called him, came up regularly to the VA Library where I work as a technician and requested magazines to read and books to check out. He also shared the contents of several scientific ideas he had read about from some of his favorite magazines from the library. He often spoke of his niece and sister in a very dear way. He also seemed to love children immensely. Fond memories of Bob.

An asset to the Zablocki VA Medical Center for many years. It was a pleasure to know and work with Bob. Although he will be missed by family and friends, it is comforting to believe in God’s promise of eternal life and be joyful that Bob is spending his first Easter in the presence of his Lord.
