Condolence & Memory Journal


We are lost for words that can explain the love we have for this man, my uncle Bob! Such a true blessing to us all and will be so missed by each and every one of us. Heartfelt prayers of comfort for the Dye family and extended family members as we go thru this very difficult time! Uncle Bob went from his earthly body to be with his love; my aunt Louise, he did so doing what he loves most, was helping others! God knew in His time it was time to bring him to Louise's side in heaven. We will miss him so very much! We love you Uncle Bob!

Bobby was one of the most thoughtful individuals I know. He was always available to help anyone and everyone. I was on the Board of the PPOA for many years with Bobby and I don't know how we will manage without him. He took care of so many things for us. My thought and prayers are with the family. I still can't believe he is gone.

I've lived on Crawford rd. for 2 years and spoke to Bob a handful of times. I will miss his friendly wave every time I drive by.

Really gonna miss that guy.
One fine & upstanding individual!

Always there. Always willing.

A true Pillar to the community.

I pray he rejoins w/his wife, as I hope to do with mine.

I doubt I would make it 5 years without her.
Prayers and condolences for his survivors, friends & associates.
He will be sorely missed.

I consider Bobby to be a Spicewood icon. One of the most positive, helpful and happy people I've ever met.
