So, so very sad. We have known Bob and Bev for more than 30 years on the lake....Funniest, happiest man ever... We Remember the numerous guitar singing nights at their home and way too many laughs... He was so proud to show us his video of the work he did in the mines after he retired....He will always be "Batman Bob" to Rob and I....He painted his boat matte black many, many years ago and we called it his Bat Mobile....For 30 yrs he has been Batman Bob...We have so many great memories of us all being together ..... A very heavy heart is felt by us and many....We wish Bev and family peace with his new journey and his memory will always shine a smile on our face....
