Dear the Torbet family, I had the pleasure of working with Bob for a few years, he was great man and will always hold a special place in my life. He never met a stranger and always had a smile on face. A true gentleman, was the salt of the earth individual. May God wrap his loving arms around you all and my prayers are with you all. God bless, David Coleman

Very sorry to hear of Bobs passing. I knew him for the work he did with the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society. We rode many miles behind the NKP 765. Bob was well known for his excellent souvenir sales on the long train trips. He is greatly missed.

Dear Suzanne, I am so sorry to hear of your brother Bobs death. I well remember going into Jones Hardware on the square w/my Parents Carl & Louise Gossard Moore. I remember the shiny red wagons & dolls on the upper level which could be seen from downstairs! What a treasure to a child! Mom lived with your parents & was a Nanny to Tom & Bob when they were children & possibly to you for a bit!. She spoke very kindly of your parents. My deepest condolences to you & the family. May God give you His Peace & Grace. Lovingly, Betty Moore Cognion

Bob's generosity will never be forgotten by me and others involved with Habitat in Lima. He was always willing to provide help for our work even at the last minute. Bob's encouragement will also never be forgotten by me. He always had a supportive interest and provided calm encouragement during our regular YMCA conversations. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to know him.

I got to know Bob from the Senior Citizens Center. Although I’m considered the baby of the Coffee/ Breakfast club, I enjoyed speaking with him and we worked out close to the same time. He always said a hearty hello and wished me well. I enjoyed a few rides in his different Ford Model T’s and have been to his house to see him in action. Bob was well spoken and he will be missed by many.

I had the distinct honor and privilege to become friends with Bob after meeting him at the Senior Citizens Center three years ago. He and I shared a deep passion for history and he often regaled our after workout Coffee Klatch Crowd with many interesting stories about Lima and history in general. I only wish I had known him longer. I will miss him. RIP Bob.

The five years we lived across the street from Bob, and Ann, and Mary Ann and Scott were some of the most memorable years of our lives. Bob was the King of our Court but he acted like a Prince, especially when we needed something fixed! The sun always shone on Bob and we were privileged to feel his warmth. He will rest in peace.
