On behalf of Betty and Bill Nagel and myself sending our condolences on the loss of Bob. My Dad has so many wonderful memories of his trips to South Dakota enjoying the company of his brother on pheasant hunts. Peace and comfort & love to all the family.

Over the last approximate 20 years— I enjoyed hunting a lot of pheasants with Bob—just a few years ago—he was still one of the best wing shooters I ever witnessed—we enjoyed a lot of great pheasant hunts together over the years—great memories! To all of his family—sorry for the loss.
