Our most sincere sympathy is extended to Lion Bob’s family. From the time I joined the Vergennes Lions in 1964, Lion Bob always was a true gentleman always willing to help those in need.
I will miss my somewhat regular visits to see Lion Bob after his health (eating issues) kept him from attending regular dinner meetings. He often commented on how proud he was to have helped start the club in 1954.
He also often mentioned how much he enjoyed his weekly game nights with his daughter and son-in-law.
Rest In Peace Lion Bob. You deserve it!
