I am so sorry about the loss of Bob. Bob was a wonderful person. He was a very hard worker. He loved to work and cut grass. I never in all the years that I knew Bob that he was not smiling. I met Bob in 1975. He will be missed by all at Avita Community Partners.

To the Family of Robert "Bob" Hall: You all have my deepest sympathies on Bob's passing. He was one of my favorite people! He touched a lot of lives here in Hart County and he will be greatly missed. I had a "pet" name for him: "Robert E. Bob". He would always laugh and tell me "That's not my name, you know my name", and we would laugh about it. Bob was so generous and kindhearted, he almost never got angry with people, and when he did, it didn't last long. He was a special person and so sweet and loving. He would come to the Center and just sit and laugh and talk before going into the community for outings. Bob was well-loved by everyone, and he truly was "The Boss". I will miss him dearly.

Bob was one of my best friends at the Center. We laughed and talked all the time. I will miss him getting on me about smoking. Bob was a really good person and I will miss him a lot.
