Good morning all of our friends here on this forum. This is Bob's daughter, Lan. It took me a little bit to navigate the website to find the correct area to post this. Dad had shown me before, but well, you know how it is. I wish to thank each and everyone here for the outpouring of support and love you showed Dad and the rest of my family. In particular my son Bo (of course you all know him as Bob's grandson). You have all had such a profound effect on our family and we are ever so grateful. My Dad, Big Biscuit as he was lovingly known as here and elsewhere is leaving a huge hole in our lives. He was such a loving husband and companion to Mom for over 40 years. He was an inspirational and amazingly supportive Dad to me, and a huge role model for my son Bo. Bo's biological father was a heavy drug user and spent time in jail and disappeared from Bo's life at an early age. Looking back, it was the best thing that happened to Bo. My Dad stepped right in as the father figure to Bo until I finally met a good man and married. Even after which, Dad and Bo continued the strong bond. Dad taught Bo all the good things in life that a strong father should. How to live life the right way, how to enjoy life, and how to accept and deal with struggles as they came. They were inseparable. Bo is devastated now. My Dad lived a very full life. He enjoyed building and working on classic muscle cars when I was very young. He was a super avid fisherman. Both commercially and recreational. He loved being on the ocean in his boat and took us out often. We camped, he worked in sports programs when I was younger and for Bo's football. Dad always had a love for knives and guns. He always, always had a knife in his pocket and taught Bo and I the value of having and using knives as tools for daily living. His love for knives was rekindled when he joined this website. He often spoke of all the good friends he made here. Dad was a very caring and giving person throughout his whole life in many aspects. He did have specific wishes for his final send off. He hated wakes and funerals, so none of that for Dad. We will be having a very private family gathering after cremation later this week or next. In that respect, My Dad requested that if someone were so inclined to do anything, he would like to see people make a small donation to the Dana-Farber Jimmy Fund, St. Judes (both for pediatric cancer) or to the college fund for Bo, arranged here by several loving members. Once again, thank you all so much from Big Biscuit's family. We love you guys. And I love you Dad!
