Shine and I have been neighbors for 33 years!! He watched my children grow, saw me go through difficult times, then, when I remarried- he was so friendly, as always to my husband Craig!! We enjoyed our chats with him and were also fortunate enough to enjoy his delicious pizza.
He will be missed beyond measure!
We send our sincere sympathy to his family
Jackie and Craig Miller and family

My family and I did not know Bobby personally. But through his daughter, Ann's stories, we got to know him a little. Our hearts ache for his family and friends! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Words are never enough, but we are truly so so sorry!
Susan & Scott Prinz
