We in the Volunteer Services office at UW Health have missed Bob and Jo since they have left. They were the sweetest people with lots of great stories about their "surprise travels". We gave them a picture of the UW as a gift one year which sparked a conversation about how they met at UW!!! We loved getting to know them both! Now they are together again. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and hope your memories help to ease the pain. Sincerely, Michael Rosenblum, Linda Spaith and Tina Nelson

I was sorry to learn that Bob passed away. I knew Bob from Coventry a few years ago. He came to my mother’s birthday party and we spent time talking with him then and on other occasions. My mother commented that he came to many of the activities they offered. He was such a sweet man. He was also known as the candy man for the delicious candy he sold. My deepest sympathy to his family at this time of loss.

Tammi Alexander, Badger Honor Flight on Mar 10, 2019

The volunteers, flight team and board of Badger Honor Flight mourn the loss of their hero, Robert Lange. We are thankful for his military service and proud to have served him on his trip to Washington, D.C. on October 13, 2012.

CandleI was Robert’s Mailman for many years when he lived on Mohican Pass with his wife Jo Ann, I also would run into him at UW Hospital. I’d like to send my deepest condolences to his family...Darryl McCants
