  1. Our love and prayers are with you, Bob, and with Margaret and all your family and friends who miss you. Your smile, your sense of humor, your wisdom, your compassion, and your skill and artistry with wood have added pleasure to our lives.

    Be with God, and God with you.

  2. I have great memories of being with my Uncle Bob when I was a young boy. He taught me how to fish, I learned to like coffee on a fishing trip with him up the Mckenzie River, picked fir cones and walk on logs in a mill pond with him. Uncle Bob has a special place in my child hood. I trust I will see him again when I see Jesus. May God give Aunt Margaret and kids comfort.

  3. Love and prayers are with Margaret and the Bob Block family. Bob was a great co-worker at the Main Post Office in Salem. He also was a great square dancer and square dance caller. Bob and I called a lot of square dances together. He was a good woodworker and a great friend. He will be missed.

  4. Our prayers and sympathy go to Margaret and all the family.Working with Bob on window line for many years at Salem PO was a bonding experience not to be forgoton. He kindly gave us things he had made in his shop,which are in view at our home. 10-4 good buddy. See you later.
