Bob and Susan were our neighbors in Greenville from 2012-2014. Bob was a fascinating guy, with interesting stories and the most impressive yard in the area. His appreciation for beautiful landscaping and his ability to envision the design were a great source of admiration. It was very obvious he loved his family and I certainly recall his appreciation for a fine vintage. Rest in a peace Bob.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mr. Bob was one of the nicest, humblest and well balanced gentleman that we have been fortunate to be a neighbor of for around 10 years. We always looked up to him with a very high gratitude. Thanks for sharing your wonderful personality and humanity with us. We are there with all our prayers and support to the family at any time. Respectfully.

We here at Cason's are so sad to here the passing of Bob, I have enjoyed Bob for many years and sold Bob a lot of material for his ponds and landscaping, not only his house but family, neighbors and friends. Bob would call me to meet with him for my advice, I always learned more from Bob than any advice I gave. A true gentleman and friend, always a handshake and a thank you. My prayers are with you, my staff at Cason's is heartbroken , any new driver I sent was giving the tour of the back yard and was amazed of the beauty and work. I personally enjoyed seeing it from start to finish. A good man that will be missed.

I had known Bob almost 30 years. I will miss our golfing days together and in-depth conversations about things of this life. Golf, gardening, landscaping, mortgages, business advice and golf gadgets are just a few of those discussion topics. My thoughts and prayers are with Susie and the entire family during this difficult time. Enjoy Heaven but we still miss you down here. Rest in peace Bob until we meet again.

Our thoughts go to the entire family. I did not know Bob well, but as his neighbor in Tuxedo Park I appreciated the beauty of his work in the garden he created in his back yard. And I remember most that he showed the garden to my daughter and her brother and sister, a very kind and thoughtful act, and she has never forgotten that, and she is sad that Bob is no longer here and in the garden.
