I did it my way could have been written with you in mind.
In the 60's you where the cool guy riding around around in your Pontiac convertibles Then you meet and married Georgine (my sister). Then came the restaurant (chicken coop) motor home 2 sons, etc.
Life was good, life was bad you where optimistic to the end.
We will all miss you and pray for you.

P.S. Happy 77th birthday. We will celebrate you with vito and Nick's pizza and a Heineken. RIP

Uncle Bob was always joking around and laughing. I had so much fun on the 4th and many other summer days at their house in Canaryville- always surrounded by friends and family (and Banyon!) We stopped by once and Ryan, Georgine, and Bobby were out and I said- that’s ok! uncle bob’s here! He’s fun! I’ll never forget how cool i thought their picnic table was- with The Morrissey’s engraved on it. Then, he made one for us with “the hederman’s” On it and we had it for years and I always bragged how my uncle Bob made it. I saw him many times later in life too, hanging with my dad- they were always working on something and/or doing nothing. We even made a song about him called “uncle bob’s van” to the tune of the Grateful Dead song, “uncle john’s band” haha. He was always light-hearted and happy. That’s how I saw Uncle Bob. And I’ll miss him. The world needs more joyous people.

You were one of a kind, Uncle Bob. Always making jokes and saying what was on your mind. Always making us laugh. We’ll all miss you.
