    My thoughts are with all the family! Bob had such a hard work ethic. He was bright, and a thoughtful man. I can’t begin to tell you what a honor it was to work with him for 13 years at Gysbers Supermarket. He has, and always will be an inspiration to me.

    Love to You,

    Cindy, Sue and Lori, I have so many fond memories of the fun we used to have and the great times that our parents shared. My father, Wayne Dillie couldn’t make it out of town without stopping to see Bob at the store. Your parents were wonderful people and I am thankful they were a part of my life. Take care, Jayne Dillie and family

    I read about ur dad today. So sorry for ur loss but like everyone told us when Ray died, “now he’s with ur mom”. We knew that was true but it did not help much at the time. I will let Mandi and Missy know if they don’t already.
