I was saddened to hear of Bob's passing. He square danced with us at Twin Bridges Twirlers and then Lake Country Twirlers. We shared stories of our working for Allstate (he in sales and I in claims), although we did not know each other during that time. I'll miss seeing his smiling face at square dances.

Robert was a high school classmate of Cliff's and a friend for many years. He was truly someone who wanted to help his friends whenever a need arose. We were one of those who experienced that help when an overwhelming home remodeling project was being done. He was there to the end and would not accept payment of any kind. We will always remember his friendship with fondness and appreciation. He touched many lives while on this earth!

Bob was a very active member of our Northeast Georgia A-Team in Homer, Georgia. He was loved by all. He was a wonderful friend, a kind and loving man and each of us at the A-Team will miss him very much. He was a wonderful Dance partner for seven years, very dear to my heart and very dear to the heart of the Caller, Ace McGee from Anderson, SC. Also, a dance partner to Connie Dean, as well. All of the dancers will miss him very much. I am sure he is looking down telling us to "Keep dancing." He loved it. Ann Gurley/Ace McGee.

I knew Bob through square dancing, a canoe trip we shared down Cedar Creek, and his many issues in connection with the condominium association where he currently lived. He loved and would often reminisce about his annual trips with the guys to Cumberland Island.
It was always fun to dance with Bob and I will miss seeing him. Rest In Peace.

Bob was a terrific person and a great friend, as well as a fellow square dancer. We will miss his jovial nature and his story-telling. Last year he brought us 2 packages of quail and refused to let us reimburse him. I had cooked some of these on the very day we heard of his passing.

Oh, how Brian and I will miss Bob. It was such a joy to be with him and dance with him on Tuesday's at the A Team. With him in the #1 position in the square and me in the #4 position so very often, he was my special corner. Our deepest sympathy to his family and all his many dear friends.

Bob was a very active member of Forest Hills UMC Singles Sunday School class in Macon until he moved away. He added so much fun to our group. Many of our class were also part of the square dance group. Bob was a big part of every function we sponsored. He had a big heart for helping others and would be the first to volunteer if needed. He was such a mischievous prankster but loved by all. I did not see him that often but when did I always left him smiling. In fact, I can not think about him without a smile on my face. Thanks for the memories in peace.

Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a great square dancer. He was also Robert's best man at our wedding 10 years ago. May he rest in peace.

John and I knew Bob through square dancing. Bob had what I would consider an infectious smile, which always made one smile. He was full of enthusiasm and enjoyable to be around. Bob, you will be missed. "RIP"

How sad it makes me to know that Bob Germany is no longer of this world. I met Bob through square dancing; I danced often as his corner, then "graduated" to dance as his partner on many occasions. He was always so full of fun and mischief, and always had a story to tell. You simply could not be around Bob and be sad or down. He was one of the most cheerful, generous-hearted people I have ever known. And while the "crazy" side of Bob was the side he usually showed to the world, he was a loyal, steadfast, and loving friend. He truly took pleasure from helping others. He was indeed "one of the good guys" and he will be greatly missed by all of us who were privileged to call him friend.
