The Gebhardt family has always been special to me. Being with all of them was like being home. Bob was special. We always loved to reminisce about Jenn’s choice of combat boot choice in High School or the removal of slamming doors. Bob always had me in tears. We especially loved to gang up on Patrick to get a laugh. ( sorry Pat) He always had me in tears laughing at Birthday Party’s. I will definitely miss sense of humor and cheer. Watching the live shared amount the Gebhardt family is amazing. Although his soul is at peace with his created, his love, laughter, cheer and strength lives forever in his family. I see it and I know Bob will always be there. Our hearts go out to all of you. Bob will be remembered and missed. Our prayers are with all of you.
Love
Dawn, Preston, Hailey and Aubrey

Back in the beginning of the year, Bob and Sue were planning a move to their new home and had offered Pat and Jennifer the washer and dryer they no longer needed. Pat came over with his trailer and after loading up, Bob and I followed him to his house in case he needed assistance unloading. On the way, we were stopped in traffic on Rt. 4, when I saw that Pat’s rear gate was not fully closed. Pat was 3 car lengths ahead of us and I thought I could take advantage of the non-moving traffic to get his attention. I opened the passenger door and stepped out on to the road while Bob stayed behind the wheel. Wouldn’t you know it, just as I started running towards Pat’s car traffic began to move. I kept running hoping to catch up but of course, never made it. Bob pulled up alongside me and I jumped back into the truck. We both had a really big laugh. Even though he was not feeling his best, he still appreciated the hilarity of the situation. Although I only knew Bob a relatively short time, I appreciated his sense of humor and good nature. Bob, I will miss you - Gary
