  1. Bob ,You have been such a good friend,we will never forget your kindness and caring person you were. There’s no doubt your at peace and in God’s loving arm’s R.I.P

  2. Dearest Bob, thank you for being such a loving boyfriend/life partner to Cheryl Griner. We will cherish our sweet memories with you over the last 32 years. You were the best grandfather figure to Stephanie and Rachel that I could ever ask for! We are heartbroken that you are gone and will miss you for the rest of our lives. Rest in peace

  3. Bob embodied an unusual mix of sharpness, objectivity, and remarkable kindness. I am thankful that our lives intersected in youth through old age. I pray that he now will experience eternal rest and peace.

  4. Our girls will never forget how Bob gifted them Cardinals bobble head figurines. It became an ongoing joke to send them back and forth. They would occasionally visit the office with Sharon Lovell (their Nanoo) and play “office” at the great big desk. Bob always enjoyed seeing photos of the girls and hearing what they were up to. He was such a sweet man that our girls have enjoyed making memories with over the years. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Mr. Nussbaumer.

  5. What a blessing that Bob has been in our lives. He’s not only been a friend/boss to my mom (Sharon Lovell), but also a friend to my family. He sent well wishes when health issues arose when my boys were young and continued to check on them during their 26 years.
    I’m so sad he’s gone. He’s been part of our family discussions for so many years.
    He was loved by us, and is already so missed.

  6. One of my first jobs was working with Mr Nussbaumer. He taught me so much in my time with Funsch & Nussbaumer. He was such a critical thinker and took great pride in his profession.
    My mother Sharon came on to work along side Mr Nussbaumer and all the wonderful people who ended up passing through over the years. Those two were the perfect fit. I am so happy they have had earth other over these last 35 years.
    Bob was a God fearing man and loved the Cardinals deeply.
    We love you Bob and will miss you.
    Love, Stacey Tieman & family
