I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Bob in person but I talked to him for many years on the phone taking his bread order. A sincerely wonderful man. I will miss him greatly. All my thoughts and prays to Nadia, Issa and the entire family. Love and Peace.

I’m so very sad to hear this. Bob had such an amazing heart filled with love for his family and such happiness towards his customers.
His courageous battle, with his wife by his side and his children running
Country Corner, was an inspiration to all.
It was an honor to know Bob.

With Love,
Kristina

My family and I will miss seeing Bob at the Country Corner Store. We have known him and his family for years, he brought light and humor into our world when we went to the store. He had remembered my daughters names and had always asked how they were from grade school to college. Condolences to the family, Bob will always have a warm place in our hearts.
Love,
LeRoy, Tulu, Jasmine & Jacqueline
