This is the thank you note sent to the ICU staff from Roy and Judy Davis that describes him well. You may not have known him before, but if you did, you'd love him like we do.
"Awesome father, husband and friend to many! Hunting buddy, expert fisherman, and teacher for little ones. He has an unforgettable hand shake, humor like no other. A walking encyclopedia filled with all kinds of knowledge. Strong talented in skills for fixing things; loves a challenge. Witty with the best come backs and can keep a straight face while telling a tall tale. Just an absolute Gem!
So we wanted to thank you for your care for our friend and just understand he's loved and missed. Roy, Judy, Gabi & Yara
Bob dearly loved his family and always put them first. Love does not make the world go round, Love is what makes the ride WORTHWHILE!
