To the family of Bob Truscott, Bob was not only a wonderful neighbor , he was such a kind gentleman. He and Dory were always so sweet and kind to our grandchildren when they would stop by. Such a cute couple??He sure loved Dory and his entire family. He holds a very special place in our hearts. He will be missed !!!! He and Dory were very proud of their children and grandchildren. He was just so lovable! Love, Bob and Wynne your next door neighbors

Your family will always be in my childhood best of memories. As next door neighbors, it was like having a second home with Bob & Dory as our second set of parents; always wondering if we all had our chores done so we could go out to play. Sleepovers with movies and pizza was the best. And we even had a great vacation with your family one summer to Pennsylvania. All my very best to your family and I pray for God’s love and peace for all of your families.

I will always remember the sleepovers and your Dad yelling at me and Robbie for getting into stuff we were not supposed to be into. We TOTALLY deserved it every time!!! Good times and great memories for sure. He will be missed.

Thinking of Candace and Rob and their families at this sad time. We loved “Mr. T” so much and what a wonderful life he had. He had such beautiful flowers that he always enjoyed taking care of. I’m sure Bob is seeing his Dorrie again! With deepest sympathy.

I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing Candice and Robbie. I have such fond childhood memories of summer days year after year running from our house to yours back to ours back to yours.... Playing with toys, yard games, riding our banana seat bikes, and hanging out. Your father was always there in the background working in his garden, trending the trees, and keeping an eye on us. We were all so fortunate to have had our parents and our homes so close together, so full of fun activities, so safe, and so comfortable. Bob will be missed - the last of our four parents... How can that even be? The blink of an eye. Love, peace, and comfort to you both and to your families. Suzanne (Blickensderfer) Rutan
