When I think of my uncle, I think of a proud man who loved his family.
When I think of my uncle, I think of summertimes playing in his backyard pool. He would play the shark. I remember the fun
When I think of my uncle, I think of his sly smile and devilish grin, the same one he shared with his beloved mother.
When I think of my uncle, I think of a man we all knew could be counted on.
When I think of my uncle, I think of a good man, a great uncle.
Love you Uncle B, I was blessed to have you in my life.

I am sad to have heard of Bob, my former father in laws passing. I loved the years of Bob, Jimmy and Bob Haley working on the camp in the Ossipee Lake area, we all enjoyed our times with all the family and friends hanging in NH with Virginia cooking the best Ossipee Chicken and camp fires with all! Bob was a caring man that truly loved his boys and Virginia! I am sure he will be missed! Love you Bob! Sandi
