Uncle Bob was always up for a good card game of euchre. Even though most times it was the women that won! We also remember that he had a “green thumb” with beautiful flowers and gardens. Much love to Aunt Lois and the family.
Lois, I’m so very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I will always remember him as a good and kind person and a wonderful neighbor, ready to lend a helping hand without ever being asked. We missed you both after leaving SunRiver and hope you’ll have occasion to visit at sometime in the future. My sincere condolences to you and your family. —Shirley Woods
I am so sorry for your tremendous loss, Lois.
So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. We were blessed to have Bob and Lois as our neighbors in St George. He always had a hug for me when I saw him. He has been missed in the neighborhood and will be missed in life. Our prayers to Lois and the rest of the Overbaugh family. Take solace in knowing that Bob is with our Lord, now.
What a dear man! He always had a twinkle in his eyes and did his best to make everyone smile or have a good laugh. So thankful for the years I worked with Bob at National Mutual Benefit.
I am so sorry to hear about Bob's passing. My Mom (Mary Statz) has so many wonderful memories of Bob and Lois.
Not too long ago my husband and I stopped unannounced at their house in St. George on a road trip as my Mom told me that they lived in that city. They welcomed us with open arms and we got to hear some great stories.
Thinking of the Overbaugh family. Praying for you.
