Bob was a loving brother, friend and confidant for 66 years. I will miss him every day! For all the memories Bob has given me, for all the conversations we’ve had together and experiences growing up, he is simply irreplaceable in this life. I pray that Bob will find eternal peace in the heavenly mansion of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Dear Farquer family
Chuck and Evi mourn your loss.
We both worked at the Courier Times and Evi worked for Bob’s mother.
We were shocked and saddened to read of Robert’s death in the Courier Times. We met Robert and family through his parents. They were active at First Baptist of Levittown while I was pastor. Robert was a very caring son who kept a close eye on his aging parents. Such caring carried over into the rest of his life. We will remember the family in prayer.
