It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing this update.

Bob passed away tonight about 8pm.  He was surrounded by his and Kathleen's families.  

Kathleen said Bob went peacefully and even made them laugh in the last moments of his life.  

Bob was a remarkable man and put up one hell of a fight.  He was much stronger than any of us could have ever imagined.

Kathleen has asked that we do not call her right now; she needs some time to herself and will let us know when she needs us.  Please respect her wishes as this is a very difficult time.

Please keep Kathleen in your thoughts and prayers.  

The visitation will be Tuesday, August 7, from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service at 11 a.m., at the Davenport Family Funeral Home, 419 E. Terra Cotta Ave. (Route 176), Crystal Lake.  Pastor John Drake will officiate.  Burial will be in Windridge Memorial Park, Cary.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Bob’s name may be made to Hearts of Gold, PO Box 7806, Algonquin, IL 60102 or the Wounded Hero’s Foundation, 161 N. Clark St., Ste. 4200, Chicago, IL 60601.


Warriors Watch has been asked to escort our brother from the funeral home to his final resting place.  No flag line will be needed.  

Bikes for BOB.....lets show up in force to show him and Kath that they mean the world to us!

Rest in Peace Dear Friend...


Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: 1. Jesus Christ. 2. The American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your Freedom.

Ya fought hard and long Bob.  Time to ride easy in Region 7 with our buds.  Man there's some good people there.  Somehow, when it's my turn to relocate there, it'll be a whole lot easier knowing you all will be there, waiting to show us all the cool roads..

Until we ride again..

Native American Prayer
I give you this one thought to keep,
I'm with you still. I do no sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone
I am with you still, in each new dawn.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand there at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die.

Tha battle was fought like a man my friend.
I will miss that humor. To Kathy and family my prayers and thoughts are with you.
