We feel such sadness about Bob’s passing It has been an incredible joy to find him and our wonderful Illinois family this past year. To be able to speak with him, thank him for his service, see his smile, and hear him play his harmonica is something we will forever treasure. What a great man. You are all in our hearts.

My Uncle Bobby was a good and kind man. He served his country in time of crisis and always put his family first. Those are rare qualities. He will be missed.

My sympathy to all the Jung family. He was a wonderful man, enjoyed his company when taking all three of the brothers to the eye doctor. Had a lot of laughs from the three of them. May he rest in peace.
