BOB WAS ONE OF OUR FAVORITE PEOPLE. STRAIGHT UP OLD SCHOOL, A TRULY NICE GUY, GENTLEMAN, LOVING FATHER, AND FANTASTIC HUSBAND. MEN LIKE BOB ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN. HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL WHO WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO KNOW HIM.

Kathy, as you know, you and Bob have always been like family to Jeanie and me. We will miss Bob greatly. We have laughed,cried,broke bread, and played many rounds of golf together over the past 5 years. He was like a brother to me and Jeanie thought the world of him. I will never forget Bob and the impact he had on my life. We love you and will always be here for you and the family.

We are really going to miss Bob. He was a great friend and fellow employee that taught me a lot. I owe him for some of the things he did to help me out. Whether it was discussing work or having fun, Bob put his whole heart into it. We had some great times talking about The Ohio State University as well as singing OSU fight songs at 3 AM in Belgium. Bob cared a lot for his family, Kathy, Rob, Andrea, and the grandkids. We will always think of him. Ray & Karen

Dear Kathy and the Kurelic family, I can not express the sorrow I feel in my heart for you. I do not have the words to show the true sadness I feel for you and your family. Bob was truly one of best men I was ever blessed to know. A friend, a mentor, and an example for us all. I loved him very much and, as is typical of people, I never told him that. You and I spoke a bit about God's plan on Friday and if there is a lesson for me in this, it is a simple one. Don't wait to tell loved ones how you feel. Don't put off until later the things you can do today. Once again, to the last, Bob has taught me something I will not forget. He taught through actions not words, through deeds not promises, and he did it all with humility and grace. God bless him and keep him in His arms. I will miss not knowing he is there to reach out to and hearing him say " Daaaviddd" Well "Son" what's up. With sincere condolences, David

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. In sympathy and love, "Marge" & Jerry

Dear Kathy, Rob & Andrea: I worked for Bob many years at P&J. He was a great teacher to a sales guy who thought he knew everything. Best Bob Kurelic lesson: “son, take the cotton out of your ears and put it in your mouth!” I think of him often after I left PrimeSource for other pastures. I'm so sorry for your loss. Truly a great boss, friend & family man. The Lord is eating better BBQ today.

Mrs. Kurelic, I just found out about Mr. Kurelic. Mac Manley came into the bank where I work and I noticed he had a check from you so I asked how Mr. Kurelic was doing. I am so sad that he didn't make it. I don't know if you remember me, but I worked in registration at Good Samaritan Hospital and at the Imaging Center at Cowles Clinic in 2011/2012 when you both would come in there for his blood tests and MRI's. I always thought so much of both of you - you were so friendly and nice. I left Good Samaritan in May 2012, but have often wondered how you both were doing. Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of such a wonderful man. I hope you can find peace in the wonderful memories I'm sure you have of him.

Sincerely,
Caron Pendleton
