Bob was a great person and neighbor, at times we would talk and compare medical issues. My deepest sympathy to the family

I've only known him as Uncle Bob. What wonderful memories I have as a teenager hanging out at his house with Uncle Larry, Brady, Pat, Kimmie, Raymond Lee & Kim. Back then that was the normal crowd, of course any given weekend there would be people meandering in and out. Tears of laughter all the time! I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to know Uncle Bob & share in all those good times. I extend my heartfelt condolences out to the entire family. Love you all!!

There was never a party without Bobby Snook. Never a funnier , kinder or stronger man. If you knew him you knew he was a great cook. He was good at everything he did.
He never knew a stranger. Infact most friends called him 'Uncle Bob'.
He loved children and animals.
He knew and loved Jesus.
We had a date for Friday night but Jesus decided to intervene. Thank you God for stopping his pain and healing him.
I will see him again someday.
I loved him and his sweet family.
