Condolence from Rev. Mark Kopp on June 26th, 2019 10:13 am

Sorry, I will not be able to attend the funeral because I will be presiding at a funeral at that same time Friday. Please know that you all are in my prayers! Like all the fathers in that neighborhood we grew up in, Bob was tough and he scared the s#$% out of me…but he was a good man who obviously loved his family very much. While we don’t always see eye to eye with our parents growing up, we come to appreciate them all the more when we ourselves become parents. Blessings to you all!!

I was saddened to read of Bob’s passing. Bob kept in touch with the GHS class of “49” and enjoyed treating us with a Lancaster “Shoe Fly Pie”.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

Condolence from Karen Anuscavage on June 26th, 2019 3:35 pm

Thank you so much for sending your message and sharing your memory of shoe fly pie. My dad spoke of his class friends and especially the pies he used to bring to the ladies.

He truly enjoyed all of the time he spent with his classmates. Thanks for being such a lovely friend.
