Bob has been known by many. Some of you may have known him as your trash/recycle guy as he has worked for Mountain View Waste for 10 years.
Bob's time on earth ended Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at Swedish Hospital in Denver, CO where he was being treated for melanoma cancer that ultimately would have taken his life. Bob passed away during emergency surgery, just a day before he was going to go home to his family for hospice care. Bob and Sandy shared their 20 year wedding anniversary the day before he left this world. 
Bob was a family man; he loved his children and grand children more than anything.  Sandy will forever remember great memories of Bob teaching the kids to ride bicycles, motorcycles and how he enjoyed teaching the kids at a young age the importance of gun safety and handling. He was a self sufficient and knowledged man, he had great respect for animals and loved his family dearly.
In our small but growing community, Bob has serviced many. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. During an already difficult time in our community our hearts are filled with grief and despair. 
 Sandy is in great need of financial support in her time of grievance as she is struggling with medical/hospital expenses and now funeral cost as well as her own medical complications and inability to work. 

Please send you thoughts, prayers and support to Bob's family.

Hi all,
I spoke with Sandy on the phone today. Since she does not have internet at home she has been unable to see the out pour of support and love being given to her here on gofundme.com

Sandy says she is doing "okay" and that a relative of hers is keeping her posted on the success of this fundraiser. She is very grateful to all that has given during this very difficult time.
But we are not there yet.... Sandy still has a great deal of distress, financially and mentally.
Please continue to share this post with everyone you know.
If you knew Bob share his story and remember what a great man he was. For Sandy, keep her in your heart and continue sending positive energy her way.
Tonight when you're at home with your loved ones or whether it be you speak to someone you care for over the phone, via internet or however, remember that in a moment they could disappear from your life.
Cherish our short time on this earth and never pass up a moment to tell someone that you care.

Thank you all for contributing to this fundraiser!

Sandy - There are no words. We am so sorry to hear the news. Bob was a very kind and loving man. We cannot imagine the loss you are feeling now.
