My sincere condolences to Jana and family. Bob was an incredible person to know and be around. Always had a smile on his face and positive words of wisdom. The Toastmasters world has loss an incredible voice.

Death Is Nothing At AllBy Henry Scott-HollandDeath is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!========Bob, Thinking of you until we meet again.Jana, Praying for God's perfect peace to embrace you now and always.With much love and adoration, Pamela and Gary McCown

Bob was and will continue to be an inspiration for many both in toastmasters professionally and in other areas.His relentless focus on achieving and putting his heat and soul into whatever he undertook was commendable .I met and spoke with him daily at the 2014 International Convention in KL and every moment with him was valuable.His last words to me were SING YOUR SONG.And the most eloquent phrase I heard in Toastmasters from Bob was “When you sing your song, you touch a heart. When you touch a heart you become a star and shine a light of hope for the whole world to see.” Bob, you have sung your song, touch many hearts and becomeYou have left a legacy behind.RIP, my Friend.Jana , my heart goes out to you but always remember you have been a wonderful partner as well in whatever ways possible and my thoughts and prayers are with you as Bob is firmly etched in my heart and mind as an inspiration to me and many others .

Over the last 20 years, Bob has been a true friend, teacher and confidant. I will miss him terribly. Jana, my heart goes out to you; you too have been my teacher. We laughed together and got very serious together, which is what friends do.

My sincere condolences to the family for their great loss. Bob was an inspiration to me, his energy and enthusiasm were unmatched. I have learned a lot from him and his wife Jana through my journey in Toastmasters. I considered him as a mentor and respected his perspectives.

Jana and Family,Robert fought a valiant fight. Though now passed, he will always be with us, though we may not see him, we will feel him as he lovingly guides you in your daily activities. He, in my opinion, will always be with you, Jana. May the many beautiful memories you two created help you overcome the deep feeling of loss.

Darrel & I remember Robert from when he taught Lubbock Bible Class held in Rix chapel. He was such a dynamic, informed speaker who held our attention till the very end; and we always wished there was more time to listen to him. It was so sad that he was diagnosed with ALS. May Jana find peace and comfort during this time.

I send heartfelt condolences and prayers to Bobby's family. We were all a part of Jr. High and High School activities with Youth Reach through Broadway youth activities. We could always count on a laugh and a shoulder with Bobby. Everyone also enjoyed the Christmas decorations.

I never knew what happened to Bobby after Karen Sue died. I had no idea he was still in Lubbock and at Broadway His mother and I were good friends as were his grandparents, Lawrence and Nila Green. I’m sad to hear of his passing but so encouraged about his life for Christ May you be blessed by knowing you haven’t lost him. You know where he is
