We are so thankful for the many years of friendship with Bob and Marge. We have so many good memories of our camping trips together and those hours and hours of playing cards. We always teased Bob how lucky he was playing cards, cause we always felt he won more than his share!!! He would always have that “Bob smirk” when he would win yet another game!!!! Cherished memories now for sure! We love the Morgan family.
John Hansen says
Always enjoyed our conversations during family gatherings. You and your hunting stories will be truly missed. Thoughts and prayers to your family!

I always enjoyed spending time with Bob on the water and in the woods. He had a passion for the same things I do. He also had a special leadership quality where you wanted to follow him and do well. Fun to be around and always treated people with love and respect.

Irene Bjorklund says
I am so very sorry for your loss. I was privileged to care for Bob when he was in the hospital. He was a special man, very kind. He was sorry he had to bother us and felt bad for me that I wasn’t going to get any sleep. I had to keep re-assuring him that I was just here for him and to make sure HE could get some sleep. He was thankful for every little thing we could do for him. It was hard for all of us to see him slipping away so quickly. Again, we feel for your loss.
