Anne, Robbie, Elaine and all the Ferrigan Family,
Having known Bob for over 40 years I will say that He was a man to be admired and led a life that all could strive to follow. What can you say about someone who literally hit all the buttons in his life? He wore so many hats and had a lot of titles. I know he wore his Hubby, Dad and Grandpa hats the proudest. I will miss him very much. He probably has heaven straightened out already.

CandleWe will all miss Bobs smile and jokes. He never let his medical things change his warm and friendly personality. I will always remember camping with your guys when I was a kid, it is one of my fondest memories along with the calm bakes in our back yard. You were all great parents and set an excellent example. He will be sorely missed!
