Prayers for the family. Robert Lee was the last of his generation for our family. He will be missed by any who knew him.
I’m so sorry to hear about Robert’s passing. My daddy sure did admire him and considered him a good friend. I’m sure Robert joined in the mischief Daddy and Waldo created at the ASCS office. I have fond memories of going to your house for fish fries when my husband was in school and my son was little. It brings back good memories. I still have a pie recipe I got from Lena. Those ASCS ladies were good cooks. Lena, you and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Sorry for your loss. Bob was a dear friend and I enjoyed joking with him alot. I was glad to have helped him sell your Dairy cows when they were sold. You will be missed dearly Ole friend.
I remember the fun that me, Billy Joe and Bob had in ourYounger days. When Billy Joe Called Bob usually had somekind of message for me. Healways said something funny. He was one of a kind.He will be missed.
To Bob’s family: Didn’t have the pleasure of meeting any of you personally, but feel I know you just from traveling on the Jail Standards Committee with Bob for several years. He was a fun guy, always full of fun stories. He made our trips very enjoyable, always needing to take a recess for a cup of coffee and go outside for a cigarette. First thing when we would meet up, he would have a new joke for me, I have missed him on our last inspections. He spoke proudly of all his family and his dogs. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Prayers for all of you. Kaye House

Prayers and love are with all the family. We know Bob is Home and in no pain. I only have one concern. Who is going to call me and plan a scheme to aggrivate my brother? That one was for you Uncle Bob! I'll do my best to carry on our tradition. I can see that mischievous smile on your face now.
Mr. Roe was a fantastic friend and gentleman. We traveled many miles together. We worked on a number of projects all across north and northwest Arkansas. He was a great citizen and volunteer. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

You all beat us 3 times that year but we got in the finals of district and we beat you all. I use to rub that in as much as I could. Bob you are a much better place. Rest in peace, Brother.Johnny
