Marian, Marvin and I are so sadden to hear of Bob’s passing. I sit and reflect on the many great memories of Bob at our tractor shows and rides. We had a lot of fun. He came to Marvin’s rescue and helped him move his bolts’ bins to our new location on the highway. He sat on that Bobcat so focused and intent as he loaded those bins and put them on our trailer. It was amazing to watch. You are in our thought and prayers.
Marvin and Jean Shepherd
