A committal service will be held at a later date in Rocky Gap Veteran’s Cemetery with the Rev. Bobby Holcomb officiating, and military honors accorded by the American Legion Proctor Kildow Post 71 and Deer Park VFW Post 10077 combined honor guard.  

Bob’s family would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to the hospice nurses and caregivers who took such wonderful care of him.
