To one of the Best Brother-in-law I could ever have. I was lucky that Linda choose him a husband. He told the Best jokes and kept all laughing. Him and Linda would pick me up when I was about 7 one time while all other girls where gone and make me candy apples to cheer me up. Will miss you Debbie

I have been blessed to have Red as a father in law. He always treated me like a daughter. He worried about and supported me through some some really tough times in my life. I will miss the stories he used to tell. Rest in Peace "dad". Love you.

Linda, it is with my deepest sympathy hearing of Bob's passing. Some of my fondest Honey Grove memories feature Bob right in the middle of our family gatherings on Saturday night. As dusk decending the cars would pull up in front of Grandmother and Grandaddy's house, the card tables would be setup throughout, dominos or wahoo ready to be played. Debbie and I sitting on the front porch swing waiting for the lighting bugs to come out, with jars at the ready. I would wander back in to watch one of the games,, Bob was always ready to teach me something, play your doubles early in dominos or knock your opponents marble off and send them back to base quickly in wahoo he would tell me. Then he would laugh,, that big boistrous laughed heard throughout the house. He might ask me if I had seen the latest Rifleman tv show that week. Then Deb and I would head out to hunt lightening bugs, standing in the front yard in the dark with jars lighting up and looking back a the house all alight with family and friends inside enjoying being together, then you would hear Bob laugh again and you knew it was him. Those memories will stay with me forever, we were blessed to have lived in such a moment with one another and will be blessed again when we gather across the river. Love Randy and Reba Williams
