    Daringer Family: Rest in Peace Bob. Now you are with Barb. Our memories of the Karaoke Shows, when you and Barb would sing "This is us " together. What an awesome couple  and it was a total pleasure of being around the two of you and spending time with you and Barb. We put on a birthday celebration for my family members that had birthdays in August and at the Izzac Walton and the two of you came. it was great to see you and Barb at the various shows. It was a total honor to be able to call you both, OUR FRIEND. You will be missed!  BOOTS & RJ  Hoffman
