My dear uncle Bob died peacefully on 5-22-2006 at around 19:00 hours EDT. His wife of more than forty years at his side. He went quietly into his eternal reward while out with his wife. She had taken him out of the nursing home in his wheelchair to enjoy the Wisconsin spring. My mom writes that he simply sighed once in his sleep then was gone. His son David had proceeded his father many years ago as had his favorite dog , a beagle named Patches. (So I know he wasn't alone for his final journey nor will Patches need to wait by the bridge any more.) I learned about firearms from uncle Bob and treasure those lessons. He taught me many things great and small. He is survived by his wife Gwen , his sisters Jane Simpson (my mother) and Susan Miller as well as his children Richard and Susan. I will miss him. "God bless you Robert, God bless you."
