Dr. B was my veterinarian for my cats since I moved to Sherwood 15 years ago. He touched my heart because he was the only Doctor who seemed to care about and connect with my cats; before he would examine them he would first hold their head and look into their eyes and establish trust to them. I found out yesterday that Dr. B had passed when I was updating my contact information for my cat with his Animal Hospital in Sherwood. I had last seen Dr. B for my cat in May of 2023 so when I was told he had suddenly passed away I couldn't believe it. I had to call his office twice because I couldn't believe it was the truth. Dr. B and his family and Veterinarian staff are in my prayers. Dr. B will always be loved by me because he saved my cats lives. He was the best Veterinarian and honest, intelligent and genuine person. God Bless.

I was devastated to learn of Dr. B's passing. He's been my veterinarian since I returned to the US with my two British kitties in '93. And he's cared for their successors, as well. I really appreciated his honesty, sense of humor, and enjoyment of my cats- especially my now 15-year-old Siamese. He always had extra time to give Rolly cuddles during his exams. I will miss him and send my condolences to his family.

I am so saddened hearing of your families and our communities loss of Dr. B! My aunts used to babysit my first dog, MG and started my 30 plus year journey with Dr. B. I have brought all my babies to him for his loving care, kindness and empathy that he shared.

I live in LR and chose to drive the 20+ minutes just for who he was to me and my babies. We always talked about his girls on our visits and he was so proud of the young ladies they have become and loved his family so!

My thoughts and prayers are with you all!

I send my condolences to Laura and family and Ava and Jill. I was saddened when my sister sent Lance’s obituary from Fort Smith newspaper. I enjoyed spending time with Lance in high school and soon after, seeing his ferret and gerbil, riding thru the woods (now ABF office) in his Jeep, listening to Billy Thorpe’s “Children of the Sun”. I learned some culture when he smashed the crystal cup at his wedding. My brother Mark said Lance showed him the correct orientation of his car’s distributor cap to get it started after a home tune-up. After college, Lance moved east, and I moved west. I regret not keeping in touch with him. He was kind, fun and interesting. I’m sure all his family, friends and patients will miss him dearly.

When I moved to Sherwood 7 yrs ago I began taking my pups to him and was thrilled with the care he provided.
He reminded me of the Family Physicians you hear of from LONG ago.
Caring, and kind- he never made you feel he was in a rush. .
Instead he took all the time necessary to explain the dogs condition, educate us , and answer any questions we might have.
He was in a league of his own, and he will be greatly missed. .
