Dear Kathy & Family; I was so sad to hear that Bob had passed away. I did not know that he was ill. Bob was such a sweet man. So quiet..." A man of few words".....but when he did speak, everyone listened. We had some very memorable times in the 34 years that I have know both of you. Bob so patiently taught me to golf and tried in vain to teach me to play pool. He was always a kind friend, hardworking fellow worker, and always a gentleman. He will be missed by many. Brian & I loved the fun times we all had at the Becker Christmas parties.....we were having the time of our lives, but didn't always realize that...till now. May you find solace and comfort from the many friends that loved you both and still appreciate your friendship...even though we don't see each other much anymore. If there is anything that Brian & I can do Kathy, please let us know...life can certainly change direction in a hurry. We will always treasure your friendship, and hospitality. Love and sympathy Brian & Linda Johnston
