So sorry for your loss, I have known Bob for a very long time, such a great guy he was. Him and dad were always wheeling and dealing! Prayers for all. Connie Hansen Hoepker
What a beautiful, talented, smart, and kind family Bob and Onalea shared with our Hopkins community and the Wray Memorial United Methodist Church! We all treasured their friendship and their contributions to everything of which they were a part. A goodbye to Bob would not be complete without a heartfelt thank you.
What an amazing story for a wonderful man. As a friend of Mike and Delia Huff we wish to offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to the Huff family.
So many fond memories I will have the rest of my life of Uncle Bob. Time spent at the farm, with his dogs…and oh yes his family as I was growing up. He always had a place for one more at the table and always a sense of humor.
To the Huff family, we are sorry for your loss and offer our condolences. Really missed you guys when you left Elmo. R.I.P Bob
