I learned about Bob through the words of my fiancé, Airton da Paixão. Bob was his boss for many years and he told me how happy he was when he found out about us, getting engaged a couple of years ago. His warm, heartfelt words will revisit us the day we marry. —Teresa

A life marked by an abundance of kindness and class. A friend you would like to have and the best boss ever. You will forever decorate our memories.

Bob never failed to greet me with genuine interest and a warm heart. I always departed his company with a silent prayer of gratitude for having spent time with him. A remarkably endearing person…. I knew him as fun-loving, charming, intelligent, ambitious and thoughtful. His presence conveyed both kindness and humility and I am truly grateful for how sweetly he shared himself with those he knew and loved. There is a deep sadness in my heart for all of us who knew Bob, loved him and will miss his company, especially his wife Sandy their children and grandchild. His deep love for Sandy and his beautiful family was evident and filled with pride and joy! Holding onto the blessings he brought, the memories he shared and the love that will remain within our hearts I share your sorrow and pray for the strength that will carry us forward with a measure of inner peace. Love Sandy G

Our hearts are very saddened by your loss of a very wonderfully ambitious, kind and giving person, Bob was a special husband, father, uncle, and Grandpa. We always looked forward to spending time with him at family events especially at Lake Winni. Fishing Derbies. Bob will be very much missed and remembered always. Here’s to you and your terrific smile.

Love always Gretchen and Dick

It is truly difficult to capture the breath and depth of what Bob Yurko brought to our lives. He will always be remembered as a man who carried in his heart the qualities that you would want in a family member or friend. He was thoughtful, gentle, kind, loving, full of hugs with an ear for listening intently and making everyone feel like they mattered. His kind ways, laughter and positive loving energy will be greatly missed. We love you so much "Uncle Bob with the glasses" love, Wendy and Bob.
