Let me live oh Mighty Master
Such a life as man should know
Tasting triumph and disaster
Joy, but not too much of woe.
Let me run the gamut over
Let me fight and love and laugh,
And when I’m beneath the clover
Let this be my epitaph
Here lies one who took his chances
In a world of busy men
Battled luck and circumstances
Fought and fell, but fought again
Won sometimes but did no crowing
Lost sometimes but did not wail
Took his beating kept on going
Never let his courage fail.
He was fallible and human
Therefore loved and understood
Both his fellow man and women
Whether good or not so good
Kept his spirits undiminished
Never false to any friend
Played the game until it finished
Was a sportsman to the end.

Bob, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, you will be so missed. You are loved so much.

Cremation has already taken place and memorial will be at a later date.

Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home, 600 CY Avenue, Casper, WY 82601.
