I have fond memories of Bob growing up. I remember every branding and how he would endlessly give me a hard time. He had a way of handling Grandma Monty that was especially admirable. He could make her spitting mad and laugh all in about 30 seconds! Continue to hold the gentle memories and share his wisdom and humor. Tara (Spannagel) Nickoloff

To Bob’s Family~~ We have many memories of Bob–especially bus trips (and I took a lot of them with him)–He was always good for a few laughs and a few embarrassing moments. May your memories be many and happy and help you through this time of grief. Bob and Cathy Emmons

The fond memories of growing up in Hysham, Montana and knowing this great family are remember by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, the Hert’s and Rhodes’s

  1. Criswell and I were stationed together in San Diego, Ca in the 50s. We were in Squadron VS-38. We deployed to Guam and Japan in 1953 then again to Japan in 1955. We were discharged together in July of 1955. He went to Hysham and I re-enlisted and stayed ion the Navy for another 20 years. I have fond memories of Robert.
