Bob was a great and kind man! Bob and Eve had recently welcome my mother and I with open arms at the Easter Service. And, I will never forget how they dance at the fundraiser events. He will be missed by so many of us. My prayers are with his family.

I attended Lindenwood Christian Church many years ago with Bob and heard him speak about the Memphis Mayors Advisory Council for Citizens with Disabilities. He chaired the Employment Committee {1992 or 1993}. I immediately got involved, Bob was so inspiring about the work. Then we appeared together on an interview by Steve Hayslip, on Channel 3 TV, with Jim Futtrell. Bob helped me put together and promote an “Employers Guidebook to Hiring People with Disabilities” who I was one and had been all of my life "person with a disability." He taught me so many great things on how to be "whole" and have a disability. May the Lord continue to bless his family and may his work continue to bless others.

Bob and I were room mates at Bethel - He was one of the best people I have known - I remember while we were pledging our fraternity, we were taken out at night and left to find our way back to Bethel - since Bob had limited eyesight, he hung on to my shirt as we worked our way back to Bethel - now that is trust -
Prayers with his family . . .

I am just heartbroken. Bob was one of the finest men I had the pleasure of working with and calling my friend. We had lunch together for many years at Craigmont and enjoyed every minute of it. I was so happy when he met Eve. They had such a wonderful love story and my condolences go out to the entire family. May the lord wrap you all in his arms at this difficult time. I know Bob is dancing in heaven.

My uncle, Bob Day, was married to Eve prior to his death many years ago. Bob Gammon was a top-notch man, and a great southern gentleman. He was also a great husband to Eve. I've never seen a couple that were on the go as much as those two. They covered a lot of territory together and really loved each other. Bob's death was so sudden. I know Eve is in shock. May God be with you, Eve, during this sad time. You and y'alls entire family are in Donna's and my thoughts and prayers. May God rest his soul.
