Major condolences to the family of Bob Szoka. Bob and I were colleagues at Picker for many, many years. We shared the good, bad, and ugly times related to our job experiences. Please celebrate his life every day as I will.

There are those who walk quietly through life but who make a big difference to so many. That was Bob. He has been a true neighbor to us for almost 18 years— helping us to learn about beautiful plants and sharing his favorites, snow blowing our driveway when we were at work, sharing laughs over the stone wall, helping (always helping) build a ramp when I broke my ankle or when I couldn’t fix the wheel barrel. His love of nature has always inspired our grandsons. He always took time to talk to them or wave. He amazed us with his strength and steadiness. He will always have a special place in our hearts.
