So sadden to hear of Bob's passing. Had a nice chat with him at the "morning breakfast group" in Wesleyville in the summer of 2004 while visiting my Uncle Eugene Learn. I had not seen Bob for many years. However he had the same wonderful spirit that I remembered from his visits when he came on vacation to my Grandmothers (Bessis Kephart Learn) in Florida. We were all very fond of him
Sending my sincere sympathy,

Dear Mary,
We are lifting up prayers for you these days, asking God to help you have the strength and courage it takes to face life without your sweet husband. Our memories of your 50th Wedding celebration bring special thoughts of you two. What a happy event that was!!! We shall miss Bob singing in the choir and at Friday lunches with the guys.
Love from your church friends,

When I joined Covenant Choir several years ago, Bob was very welcoming. His calm demeanor and pleasant disposition were great examples to follow. Now he is being welcomed by those who have gone before him.

When I joined Erie SCORE in 1999, Bob was an established counselor. I was impressed with his ability to provide help to the wide variety of people who requested help from SCORE. Bob always handled his SCORE assignments with competence and good humor. He will be remembered as a valuable member of our group.

Mary and family, Bob truly was one of the nicest guys I have ever known. I remember the Newlin's from the Troubadour Days in the 60's. Bob has touched many people with his care and kindness. God bless you all and bring you comfort.

I was so saddened to see of Bob's passing. He was so genuinely caring when we had family or friends at Duskcas Funeral Homes. Know that he touched many lives with his kindness!
