I met Bob in 2009 when my life was in a state of flux, because my wife was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and I had a very hard time dealing with it. He was comforting to speak to and was very understanding of my situation. His attitude towards life was positive! Always pointing out to me all that I had in life that I should look forward to and be grateful for. Never did a negative word came out of Bob's mouth. He helped me through a difficult time in my life and for that, I will always be thankful. I will miss you very much my friend! I just wish that the good Lord granted you more time on this earth, so that I could tell you just how much you mean to me. I want you to know, Bob, that you have always been and will forever be a good friend to me.

I knew Bob from Planet Fitness. I spent many a morning side by side on the exercise bikes, talking about church subjects. I went to some of his horseshoe tournaments at country fairs. I was fortunate enough to attend a big birthday party of Bob's, and feel the love of his family and friends. Recently, I ate some of his freshly caught fish. The world is a better place for having had Bob in it. Sorry to have missed the funeral, but found out a day too late. May God continue to bless his family and comfort all those who mourn him.

My deepest condolences to the family of Bob.I have known Bob for over 10yr as a good friend and fellow member of the New Haven Horseshoe club. Every time I seen him,he always had a smile and a handshake. He was a true gentleman and never had a bad word to say about anyone.I was proud to know him as a good person and friend. He was a very dedicated member to the horseshoe club and volunteered many hours of his time to help make our league the best it could be. He took the game very seriously and was always down here practicing.. Bob was our statistician in our club and on more than one occasion I tried to “bribe “him to get a few more “wins “during league play. It was kind of like a ongoing joke between us.He had a lot of pride in whatever he was doing and put forth 100% in his effort to do it to the best of his ability. He is going to be missed by myself and I am sure by all the lives he has touched along the way. Rest In Peace Bob and God Bless.

A fine brother in Christ. Robert was also indirectly responsible for my coming to Ebenezer Chapel almost 40 years ago. On March 30, 1980 i was invited to go to Ebenezer by my good friend Carl Babb. That glorious day my life was changed forever. Almost 40 wonderful years walking with Jesus. I and my saved children are a part of Robert\'s spiritual legacy. You see Robert is the one who influenced my friend Carl Babb to come to Ebenezer 40 years ago. Your work continues bro. See you in the morning.

I met Bob at Planet Fitness in New Haven several years ago. A group of us all looked forward to being with him Monday- Friday. We had a great time joking with him and him with us. We especially liked the horseshoe stories of the wins and almost wins and of course when the 7 or 9 year old girl beat him! It was soon after that, that he got the "stay off my shoes" tattoo! We will all miss his smiling face and warmth. We wanted you to know. We also knew how much he loved and was proud of his children and grand children. He spoke of you all often. RIP Bob.

I only knew Bob for few years playing horseshoes in New Haven. My face lit up every time I saw him. I knew there would be friendly hello and daily joke to follow. I will miss him dearly. My condolences to his family in this time of need.

My heart is so heavy right now. Bro Robert Carl was one of my favorite Sunday school teachers at Ebenezer Chapel. He was the bus driver also and David and I went on new trips every Sunday. I pray that the peace that surpasses all understanding can be found and that God's mercy,grace and love find the grieving family. Mona Fain
