On Monday May 8th, we lost a friend, a collegue, a father, a husband and a fierce defender of individual rights.
We're at a loss for words right now, but we're heartbroken and praying for his family. We'd like to show our love and appreciation for Bob.
It's too late to tell him face-to-face, but I hope he can see now how much we thought of him in our outpouring of support for his family.
He was always defending the little guy from the bully.
He always had a minute or an hour to talk, or teach, or just listen.
He touched many of our lives with his genuine caring heart. Bob leaves behind a wife and two daughters (9 and 17) who woke up this morning without 'Dad.'
Groceries, bills and college dreams will be a struggle - but we can help. If Bob made your life better, please consider a small token of your appreciation for Bob by chipping in something to help his family.R.I.P. Bob Owens.
*This effort is being coordinated by Bob's collegues at work and will be turned over to his family once they have a chance to grieve in private. Funds will be used to support Bob's wife and children as they grow up and pursue their dreams without him to help.
