Memories Timeline


  1. Julie, Danny, Jesse and all. We are so sorry for the tragic loss of Robert. I always think of him as Rob-air. May God hold you all close in his arms and help you through this. Know that many people who love you are praying for you.

  2. Julie, Jesse, and Danny and family,
    I’m so sorry for the loss of Robert. He was such a great person and my heart is breaking for you. I pray that in time you can somehow find comfort and peace.

  3. Bob was always someone who had the biggest smile in the room. You will be greatly missed by your St. Paul family. Julie, Dan, Jesse, and all: I hope you all find comfort during this time. <3

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss of such a wonderful person. I met bob when I changed his oil on his work van at Kia. In under a half hour it felt like we had been friends for ages and we exchanged numbers. We lost touch over the last few years as my family grew and I threw myself into that. Bob was special though. He made you feel warm and loved. It’s absolutely a tragedy that he will no longer be able to bring that sunshine into other’s lives. My sincere sympathy to everyone who had Bob in their lives.

  5. Bob was Art. An interesting and interested friend, who celebrated other’s for their individuality. He made me feel smart, kind and talented- even when I wasn’t being those things. He loved fervently. We talked about life and philosophy, love, music, cats, we sought advice and offered comfort. Bob was always seeking to better himself and the lives of those around him. Though he did so, just by being him; fun and wild and compassionately. I will miss our conversations. The music choices for this photo compilation is great. I am grateful to see all these wonderful photos of our bright friend. I know you know and I still would like to share, he loved his family very much. Thank you for giving him to us.

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. Bob was bigger than life. A genuine heart and soul who took the time to meet people where they were, and respect all the things that made them who they are. He was a once in a lifetime kind of human being. I am praying for you, sending you love, and hoping that in the days ahead you know he is never as far away as he feels.

  7. Bob was in our home multiple times as a professional, but we easily would have welcomed him back as a friend. We enjoyed sharing house plant propagations with him. Sending lots of sympathy to all those who loved him.

  8. My condolences to Bob’s family, I knew him as “Bobert”, he always said he was too weird to be a Robert and wasn’t old enough to be a Bob. I graduated and worked with him, we both worked at McDonald’s together for a few years. He had bright pink hair, he was the only person our Manager allowed to have fluorescent hair, which made it all the more fun. He really knew how to make even the most boring task interesting, his favorite being cleaning the kid’s play area so he could go down the slide on trays. He loved working back window and practicing accents to confuse the customers, and then watching them be confused by the kid with bright pink hair. He was friendly to everyone he came across, and often would do ridiculous things to try to cheer them up. I never was in art classes with him, but he practiced drawing and painting on all of his breaks, the most impressive being a side walk piece he did because the side walk needed to be “livened up.” I was happy to see he took up fire spinning, as he was constantly playing with hand sanitizer and making the fire dance on his hand and one time on an apron. Bob was one of a kind, he lived big, and he will surely be missed.

  9. I am so sorry to hear about the tragic loss of Robert. He worked on a job for me just one time but left a lasting impression. Such a great person! Sending prayers to all the family and friends who will surely miss him.

  10. Julie,
    So sorry for your loss. Know that Robert and your family are in my prayers! Eternal rest grant unto his soul.

  11. Julie, I am sorry to hear of your loss. I will keep you and family in my prayers.

  12. I was a flow arts acquaintance of Bob-O, as I heard him called. I saw him maybe 6 weeks ago on a bike ride on the Moorhead side of the dike downtown and we reintroduced ourselves. He caught my eye because he was stacking thin sheets of river ice in improbable formations, then photographing them until they collapsed. Always friendly, fun, and talented every time I saw him. Rest in peace and comfort to all who loved him.

  13. I’m so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I only knew Bob through his work. But when he came to our house for work, he was pleasant, did a great job, and I loved visiting with him. He seemed like a great guy and I would have liked knowing him outside of his work. We talked about a variety of subjects and it was interesting to discuss them with him. I’m so sorry for his family and friends. He will be missed.

  14. Knew Bob from work only. He was always pleasant and happy. He was a decent, honest guy you could depend on and believe in. As per his biography he will be missed dearly by many friends and family. I am glad to have known him. RIP good man!

  15. My deepest condolences to the Family. Camille Anderson Gilbertson is my daughter. She and Bobby dated and functioned as family for a few years. We loved Bobby very much. He always had a smile and was quick to help with any project at hand. Bobby also treated my granddaughter Lillian like a princess. He was a good man, taken too young. Best wishes and deepest sympathy for healing. RIP love Jane Butler-Hoaglund

  16. Dearest Julie and family, I was looking for a different obit and scrolled through. Drawn to Robert picture, I began reading and realized it is YOUR Robert. My heart goes out to you. I can’t tell you how sorry I am. I love you. Hugs, prayers, and I would send a card, not sure of your address. May our Lord lift you up!

  17. Hello Nan

    Thank you for your message. It us very hard and painful. Divorced now.
