Our deepest sympathy. Bob was a special friend of my dad, Bob Becherer. My dad enjoyed the days he spent at the farm visiting with Bob and helping him out wherever he was able.

You will be missed by all that knew you. Thank you for the all the fond memories, from coming out to your farm as a child to get fresh chickens and eggs to colorful conversation over meals at McDonald's.
