I, too, was saddened to learn of Bob's passing. Like my sister said, we have not remained in contact over the years and was surprised we were living so close. My prayers and sympathy to his family.

I am so sad to hear of Bob's passing. I am even sadder to find out much to late that he was right here in Springfield and I did not even know. He was my cousin and we haven't seen each other since we were children. I'm sorry that it sounds like he had a rough time with an illness. I would have liked to have gotten to visit with him and gotten to know his family. I hope Bill and Mark are doing okay and send my sympathies to all his family.

I haven't seen Bob or his brothers in many years. My Dad and his Dad, Bill, were brothers. I am the daughter of Harry Charneski. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a lot of fun when we were kids. We didn't see them too often, but we had fun when we saw each other. I will let my brothers know of his passing.

I remember working with Bob and talking to him every day when we would come in from surveying. But when he started dating and then got engaged to one of my best friends, I got to know him better. I will truly miss him but I know he is better off now and in no more pain. God bless you and keep you.
