I am the husband of Bob's daughter, Janet, who passed in 2003 after 25 years as my beautiful wife.Through Janet, I met Bob and learned that to his children, he was "Royal Bob, His Honor Sir". From the time I met Janet til today, he has been Royal Bob. He will always be Royal Bob to me.

I was so sad to hear of Robert's passing. He was a great man, and a great husband to my late grandmother Margaret Abbott. Robert even took the time out of his weekend to travel to Fort Wayne by himself for my wedding two years after my grandmother had passed. I will miss him dearly. My condolences to all, may God bless him.

Bob and my dad, Ed Hemmer, who passed in 2011, were third cousins from the southern part of Indiana. They were also friends, who each retired to Westminster in the later decades of the last century. Bob was a good friend to my parents, Ed and Phyllis, warm and caring and extroverted, and I remember, visiting them at Westminster as the years passed and we all aged, what a “bright spirit” he was – always enjoying what life had to offer, always welcoming and including and enthusiastic, always happy to learn about, and share with, others, of whatever generation or background. He was a great friend to my parents, and, importantly, to my mom when my dad passed. His spark made a big difference, and we miss him already. The silver lining is that, beyond a doubt, my dad is part of the greeting committee, even now welcoming Bob into Heaven!
