This passage is in remembrance of a very good man. Bob was our dear friend and neighbor for 20 years. We had many 1 on 1 visits which were always enjoyable, humorous and quite delightful. He was a most interesting conversationalist and we will miss the same. Our deepest condolences to Randy and the entire family.

So sorry for your loss. I was in one of his last classes at Lincoln before his retirement. We started off rocky but apologies made us friends forever. He ended up keeping in touch with me as I got older. He would always stop in and say hi thru the years at my shops. I will definitely miss seeing his smile and hearing his jokes. Great teacher and man.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. You are always in my heart. As a former student and a child of one of your students, we have many great memories that my dad and I share of you. Always in our hearts.

Bob was a bright spot in my tai chi class at the senior center. He was always quick with a joke and I looked forward to seeing him every week. Love and prayers to his family, he will be missed.

I was so sorry to hear of Mr. Scanlon's passing, he was my teacher for three years at Weeks Junior High. He was always one of my favorites, he was strict but always fair. He truly will be missed..
