  1. Bill Bedor says:

    Very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. The family is rapidly moving to the next generation. Kay, Anne, and I are Bob’s last cousins now. I wish we could be there to celebrate his life, but I understand, given the current health situation. Our best to the family.

  2. Mary Ellen Doran says:

    He was a nice man and a fun uncle. Always made time to talk whenever I was around him. I am thinking of you all and sorry I am not in Minneapolis to attend a service. Hugs to all my cousins and your families.

  3. Kay Bedor Bishop says:

    My very dear cousin, Bob, meant the world to me growing up. He was 11 years my senior, but he was so young at heart and became one of the “younger cousin pack” of Bill, Anne and I, and involved himself in whatever silliness and fun we got ourselves into. I remember all the times he took Anne and I on outings (to the state fair, dinners, fireworks at Powderhorn, etc.) Getting together with the Bedors meant time spent with Bob, my hero! There are no words to thank him and Bette for looking out for my folks in their later years. They were two of the kindest hearted people I’ve ever known. Please know how much your father meant to me and how I will love him always! God be with you during this very hard time and may He provide the courage and comfort that you need. My prayers and love are with you.
