Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry to hear of Bob's death. He was a kind gentleman and I will miss him. I could always trust his mechanical advice, but we also enjoyed a good chat while he worked. My condolences to his family and friends.

Bob has been our mechanic of choice for years (maybe decades). We saw him at Christmas and ran by the shop to check on him and found the notice saying he was at home. We were leaving the next day and I was not able to track down a home address for him in time. We were so sorry to hear that he had passed while we were gone. We are sorry for your loss. What happened to his dog?

We knew Bobby for over 20 years when we resided in Champaign Il. He was very car saavy and helpful when we needed work on our vehicles and/or advice. He was great to talk to and knowledgeable in all things. He really loved his pups too. When we would go back to Illinois for visits we always made it a point to see him at QAC. He was a good guy. We hope your memories will bring you peace at this time.

Bobby was one of the kindest people I have ever known. He did mechanical work for me when I lived in Champaign, and was always fair and did a fine job. The world should have more people like him. I worry about what happens to young Bo now?

Bobby was a kind, gentle, caring person. He worked on our cars for several years. We will miss him dearly. Will also miss seeing Bo on the days he went to work at the shop. RIP Bobby Lance.
