He understood the value of friendship and loved the Lord. He was a true believer of Olvatine, along with Cheerios every morning. Bob also like his sweets. He will always be known for his sense of humor; and always, always had a joke to tell. Bob will be deeply missed and his light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

Bob was a member of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church and we all loved him. He was quite the character and loved to tell a joke. He also loved to make you laugh. He showed us pictures when he was appearing with the big stars and he was so proud and we were proud of him. He was a sweetheart, always one of the first in church and he had his reserved seat, sitting in the same spot every Sunday, just across the aisle of me and my sister. Myself and the rest of Mt. Calvary will miss him and his ready smile. God Bless his family and know that Bob is the arms of Jesus, where he belongs. RIP Bob.

Remember Bob very well in the 1980's. He was married to my step-mother Liz Longo-Seals. I was even the Maid-of-Honor for them. Bob and I played in the Macomb County Community Orchestra with Tom Cook. Glad to know Bob and will raise a glass of wine in his honor.
