  1. Del LaFontaine

    Carol, I just heard of Bob’s death from Sherry. I am so sorry. I remember Bob and his sense of humor and when my son was going on his mission years ago he gave him $20 which I thought was a lot of money. He had a good heart and he will be missed. Love Del LaFontaine.

    Our condolences to the family. Bob was passionate about family history and devoted his time and effort to it. I sat by him on an occasion in church and we had a little visit. He shared this humorous story with me. He told me of talking to a person about a certain family line. The person said, “That is not my family.”
    He said, “Well let me tell you of my family and you tell me if that’s your family. I am of the family of Adam and Eve.”
    We will miss you Bob and your wit and wisdom.”
