Yesterday my oldest friend, Bob Stuart, departed his earthly home for life ever after; his life’s work here done. Although my time with him was limited, his impact on my life was profound. He was a big man, with big dreams and an even bigger heart. He will be missed dearly by everyone he touched. My sincerest sympathy and deepest condolence to his family, my heart is with you...
Bob, you will never be forgotten !! Love you
Bob was a great brother. Being born as twins we built a lifetime of wonderful memories. I was always introduced as his “older” sister since I was born 23 mins earlier. Bob loved cars, boats, motorcycles basically anything that went fast! Now it seems that it was time for him to return to the love of his life, Donna. Bob you will live in my heart forever. Rest In Peace my beautiful brother.
Dotti...my heart is breaking for you and your family. So many way too soon.
Bob had a big heart for people, and realness about him that I admired. I have good memories of our conversations. Condolences and prayers for peace and comfort to family and friends.
