    He was my grandfather and best friend. This world will not be the same . He loved his politics, and he loved his family. I'm happy I got a chance to work side by side with him for a few years. He got to know his great grand kids. He thought me work ethic from a young kid. He was always kind and the warmest hugs you could ever have. He was always full of words of wisdom, and guidance, full of life. I love him and will miss him.

    Thank you for opening your arms and heart to me from the first day you came into my life. You provided a home and life for me from 1 years old. You taught me so many life lessons including believing in myself, riding a bike, horse riding, camping, 4 wheeling, dances at the Hideaway, loving my country 7/4 your favorite  holiday, and so much more. You were so passionate about your collies, ( Luna she gave us so much love) horses, truck,dances, DJing, being Pastor Bob, Santa’s helper, and being a great Papa. You were so proud of your children/grand/great grand children. You sat thru countless numbers of tea parties,talent shows, “ girl” chats ,dances and parties with my girls. You really loved. Bragging about your family( extended family) too. I will miss all your wisdom and stories and your contagious laugh. You honestly were the strongest hugger.  You will be missed everyday. I love you and thank you for all you did for me and my girls and I’m so happy you were able to meet Liam. Papa Bob the girls love you too xoxo . RIP Dad

    Sheriff Good Bob, how true that statement is. You were the good and your kindness in being Santa at the preschool for Hannah hasn't been forgotten. All of us here have so many fond memories of you and the many stories we shared over the years.  I remember the year at the dance when you and Dorothy sang the farmer and the rancher should be friends. Such fun times. Rest in the presence of the  Lord, and enjoy the choir.

    My Uncle Bob was truly a good man. He made all of our Christmas Eve celebrations special as Santa and our DJ for life. He also granted my wish of being the minister for my wife's memorial service. Rest in Peace.

    I will always remember my Uncle Bob as the laughing smiling Santa who always sat at the end of the kitchen table at my brother Tom's house on Christmas Eves totally present in the moment and enjoying a plate of his sister Mary Rose's manicotti. He was Santa to all of us and the memories created by Uncle Bob and Santa's helpers will always live within us. Our sincere condolences to Dorothy and Bob's sisters Mary Rose and my Mom.

    Yes, our kind, gentle Uncle Bob will be greatly missed. Uncle Bob was Christmas Eve to all of us. Our kids will never forget dressing up as Frosty the Snowman and Santa’s elves to help pass out presents on Christmas Eve. No one did it better. And Ken and I greatly appreciated him and Dorothy serving as Dj’s for our 25th anniversary celebration one snowy spring day in April. We will miss your gentle smile, Uncle Bob. Our condolences to Dorothy, his loving and faithful wife and to the entire Senese family. 

    Love, Ken, Sharon, Garrett, Troy, and Alexandra Brinker
