Bob was one of our most loved volunteers here at HHS. He showed all animals, especially our dogs, such compassion and love every time he walked through our doors. He was always known for his smile and positive attitude. He will be so dearly missed. Our deepest condolences to his family and dear friends.

I am so saddened to see my cousin Bob pass so soon. Growing up and spending so much time together on weekends, holidays and special occasions at Grandma & Grandpa Zs introduced me to an intelligent, introspective man whos personality was so calm and considerate. He had a flair for style. First, as evidenced by his cool Nehru jacket and garage band way back in the day to his Camelot-like romance with Elaine. I always enjoyed hearing of their adventures and ventures as they enjoyed life with each other and their dogs, kids and grandkids. So much joy and happiness was given by him to everyone he met. The world is a sadder place without this wonderful man. My heart goes out to family and friends,

Bob and Elaine were wonderful people. They always made me smile when I interacted with them. We all enjoyed the company a few years ago when we went up to visit them. They will always have a place in our hearts.
