Dianne, James,Patty,Steph and families
My deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to all of you during this time of loss. Growing up as a next Door neighbor to the Anger family and James being like a little brother to me through our lives it feels very much like a direct family loss… I’ll always remember Bob as a very strong figure. Especially when he was a volunteer firefighter. As young kids when the “fire beeper” went off and Bob sprung into action! It was very impressionable to a young kid. Bob will be missed by many, those whom he helped through volunteering his time, a chubby neighbor kid Bob couldn’t keep out of his pool! And last but not least, his incredible family.
