I knew Bob when he and my family (husband Frank and Connie and Kenneth Kepferle) were all members of the Pioneer Riders of DeSoto. He worked hard to make the saddle club the success that it was with good ideas and personal time spent. Sorry to hear of his passing. I know the family will miss him. Sandra McCollum
