Condolence From: Jim "JET" Thompson, Columbus, OH
Condolence: Brenda,Beth, Lori Karin and the rest of the family; You all have my sincere sympathy in our loss of Bob. He meant the world to me and was the best Chief Agent I worked for in 43 years with Allegheny, USAir & US Airways. He was the 1st person I reported to in 1972 and we've been friends ever since. I truly cherished our friendship both on & off the job. I'm so very glad I was hired by Allegheny and was able to work with him and become friends. I'll miss him dearly. He was special.

Condolence: It was my privilege to serve as Bob's Pastor at Church of the Saviour, 1980-1988, along with his wife, Brenda and their fine family. In addition to being a faithful parishioner, Bob was my friend! I especially treasure the memory of him taking a day-trip with me to my home and growing-up area on the West Virginia side of the Ohio River. Bob was interested in "good, old" things and places, and he enjoyed that day together as much as I did. I send my love and blessing to all his family in your loss...my loss also, of a good friend!

Condolence: As Bob's Pastor from 1980-1988, I knew him not only as a faithful parishioner, but also as a personal friend. Precious to me is the memory of Bob sharing a day-trip to my "growing-up" area on the West Virginia side of the Ohio River. My love and blessing to Brenda and the family in your loss...my loss also, of a good friend!

Condolence: Never knowing the “right” thing to say in moments like these, my heart goes out to the Wraley family. It has been such a blessing to meet Bob and Brenda through Lori. I often marveled at how strong Bob was. From west nile to multiple bouts with cancer. He was so kind to me I felt like an honorary family member. I would be included on family emails of pictures and jokes. He would send Lori and I emails warning of bad weather. He also gave me an arrowhead that I carry with me everyday and treasure. I am so glad to have met him and he will be missed by many.

Condolence From: James Gonya, Westerville, OH
Condolence: A loss of a true friend and neighbor. Bob in his chair, in the drive, will become a fond memory. He always knew what has happening in the neighborhood and was affectionately called "mother Bob". His sense of humor will be missed as well as his memories of the airlines and his childhood in Indiana. I believe he is in a better place and has become one of those shiny stars at night to let us know he is with us. God bless Brenda and family.
