Dear Petroff Family,

I wanted to express my deepest condolences on the loss of Bob. He was my friend, a teacher, a mentor and an inspiration as a Scout Leader. His 37 plus years of dedicated service to the Scouting movement is a benchmark that very few people ever reach. Rest assured that his legacy of servant leadership will live on in the thousands of Scouts and Scouters he trained and influenced over the years. The Great Scoutmaster of all Scouts has called upon Bob, and he is home.

I first met Bob when he was my Scoutmaster for Wood Badge. Thru the years he also became my friend and supporter. He was a dedicated Scouter and someone you could count on. He will be sadly missed but his memory and legacy will live on thru all the Scouters and Scouts that knew him. Thanks Bob for all you taught me and I’m still workin’ my ticket.

Star Throwers

As the old man walked along the beach at dawn, he could see someone, far down the beach, flinging something into the ocean. Time and time again, the person would bend over, pick up something, stand up, and throw it into the water. Finally the old man caught up to the young man and asked him why he was doing this. The young man replied that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun.

“But the beach goes on for miles, and there are millions of starfish,” replied the old man. “How can you really make a difference?”

The young man looked at the starfish in his hand and then threw it into the safety of the waves as he replied, “It makes a difference to this one.”

Thank you Bob, for setting the example ever since you were “the young man” in this story and for making a difference in our lives. You will be honored by us all.

Bob will always be remembered for his wonderful guidance to so many youth.
