The Flanagan-Creighton family send our heartfelt condolences to your entire family on this huge loss of a superlative man. Bob's generosity of over forty-five years to our family will never be forgotten. His kind-hearted business sense was rare and unparalleled. He carried families through tough times when others would have abandoned a friendship for better business. His lived his life by the golden rule and we were blessed to have been a part of it. He always had a twinkle in his eye, a warm smile, and a kind word. We are grateful for his "Wonderul Life" ways and will keep him eternally in our prayers. May God bless you all.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My condolences from my family to yours. I have many memories of Bob from the firehouse, to being around the store. Bob sold me my first lawn mower nearly 20 years ago and that's what started it all. First guy to ever give a kid a house account. I will miss him and his kindness dearly.
