Dear Dave,Mary and the rest of the family. Our Deepest Sympathy to all of you, on the liss of your father. Take Care and cherish all of the fond memories of him and all the great times you all had.

David Kleinschmidt

To the family of Bob. My dad was Gordon Kleinschmidt, and he worked for Bob back in the 60's and early 70's until the time of his passing in April, 1972. I knew Bob, but only as a teenager. My dad enjoyed working for Bob and we, as a family would always talk at home about all the places my dad worked depending on the jobs Bob would have him work, from the nuns home to the bank at the mall just to name 2. I want to express my sincere condolences to his family. He is remembered as a good man according to my dad all those years ago.

James L Behrens

Many years have passed since Bob (Jack) and I grew up together on south 10 street. The bad thing about growing old is seeing all the friends leaving this for a better place I am sure. Our prayers are with you Lois, and your family. Stay well. Ruth & Jim Behrens
