Memories & Candles
Lowell was my uncle,,,my funniest uncle, my mom's brother. I have a few special memories of him, but the one I will never forget is we were both together with my grandpa (his father) when he took his last breath here on earth. There is something special about sharing that with someone. As a kid, there were times when I would think all his jokes could be corny,,,but as time goes by and I never get to hear another again,

I was a caregiver for Bob for about three months. It was an experience to be sure. But I grew to really care about him in that time. I was unable to continue working. But in the last year since I quit I have thought of him regularly. He always made me laugh.

Keeping you in our thoughts and Prayers. I'm not going to say that all of Bob's jokes were funny, but I will say that I always looked forward to hearing them and I often had to repeat them. Bob will be missed.

We enjoyed several visits with Bob when he came to see our daughter's family (Kevin and Londa Alderink). Warren especially had long conversations with Bob and found him to be a very interesting individual. Will miss him when we visit in Michigan .

Will always remember many a cold, rainy or snowy night the site of Bob showing up at a fire scene with warm food and coffee and a smile on his face. His life will be fondly remembered in Chester Township and he will be missed. May God's peace come to his family in the difficult days ahead.

Bob will be very missed around the Central Ave./Maple St. neighborhood. It just won't be the same next summer without our mobile fruit/vegetable vendor stopping by. We will miss your sense of humor. I remember last summer you stopped by eating a piece of raw sweet corn. I told you that it is really much better cooked. You shockingly said to me that that was the way your mom always served it! Whenever we came near you with walking our
