Bob Smith's Obituary

by Pa Rock

The following is the obituary for Bob Smith that ran in area newspapers. Bob and I knew each other for forty years, and he was married to my sister, Gail, for most of that time. Bob was a good friend, and I feel fortunate that I was able to have several conversations with him in the days preceding his sudden death. Bob's greatest achievement, by far, was fathering and helping my sister to raise four wonderful children: Heidi, Tiffany, Justin, and Reed.
