I was Bobs friend and caregiver. I took care of him a couple times after he came out of the hospital. He always made me laugh...God Bless you Bob...

It was so unusual to go home to Centerville and talk to someone that new my dad. My dad Doyle Curtis died 55 years ago, but Bob remembered him and would talk to me about him. He made my day.

We are sorry for your loss. He was a hard worker and Centerville should be proud to have had him there for all of those years.

My thoughts and Prayers are with all of Bobs family. Paul and I knew Bob through the Scrap buisness. He was a joy to be around. Remembering the way he would always put the steering wheel up to the top before he got out of the vehicle. God Bless.

I have only known Bob for the last 14 month, since we have put together a Regional Board of REALTORS together. But Bob has shown us his great work ethic, His understanding for change within our industry.

A few things I will remember about Bob - A man of great integrity - A soft spoken gentleman with a quick smile.

A man who will truly be missed by many.

We have sent a memorial gift to the REALTOR Foundation of IOWA in memory of Bob.

Rest in Peace Friend. .

So long Rozy, May you be singing with Angles and thank you for always be so generous to the Numa kids that came over to shop for bike parts at your salvage yard, I am sure we where a pain in the neck but you never ran us off.

I have fond memories of Bob and his friendship. I enjoyed many exclusive meals with Bob at the Brown Basket. Junior Brown (the Chef) always treated Bob SPECIAL which Bob deserved. Although older than me, Bob always treated me with respect as he shared his EXTREME BUSINESS SAVY. I hope that the commuinty of Centerville realizes and acknowledge what Bob has meant to the area.
OH! the memories of the SADDLE ROCK CAFE and the gatering of the REAL BRAINS of Appanoose county. Bob was always the SILENT CHAIRMAN!

Saddened by this news. Having only met Bob a few years ago, he was welcoming to a stranger. Always had a smile and asked how you are doing. You will be missed friend. RIP

Bob was one of my first employers setting mobile homes and helping taking care of his car wash. Great person to work for. He always remembered me and greeted me with a smile and Hello. Will be missed in the community. Rest in peace Bob.
