    Bob was such a kind and gentle man, our family welcomed him, and loved him. He will be long remembered and cherished as a positive addition to our mothers life. I can’t say enough kind words about such a gentleman.

    Cal, Carl, and Carol,
    Today our thoughts are with you all. Our best memory is of Lake Tahoe and your dad hiking — as though nothing to it –even in his 80s. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you celebrate his life.
    with deepest love,

    Calvin, Carl Henry – Carol Henry Wyatt
    Sorry to hear about your dad — I worked for Bell Plant Mgrs. Farrell Beck, & Art Heller. I enjoyed working w/your dad, always so pleasant and helpful. Several of us gals would eat at the Oliver Hotel, and Beula would always make us such wonderful salads- she would try to come out & talk to us during our lunch hrs…when she had time. We always enjoyed the 2 of them at the Bell Company parties. Think of the good times you shared w/them. Elsie Brown
