Bob was preceded in death by his parents, and his siblings, Raymond, Charlene, Donald, and Roger. And also, by his loving partner of 25 years, Janice Stenberg, in December of 1997.

A heartfelt thank you to Tommy Beiter; Bob's friend, caregiver, and partner-in-crime. Your dedication to Bob's care over the last 15 years didn't go unnoticed. A special thank you to the staff of Aurora Hospice and the staff of the Veterans Home for their kind and compassionate care.
