  • Great Niece Lisa Ahrens says:

    My fondest memory of Uncle Bob is when my sisters and I got to swim in his friends pool. Not sure what the friends name was but I thought it was sooooo cool to have a pool with a water slide. I always enjoyed seeing Uncle Bob at all of the family functions and even in his home. To all of our family, Uncle Bob was deeply loved and will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace, Lisa One of the Triplets
