    Dawne ~ So sorry to read of your father’s passing in the paper. I remember you genuinely liking your dad. What stands out for me is the boat ride your Dad took you, Kate & I on one summer many years ago. That was a lot of fun. He was a nice man. Sorry I missed the calling hours but found out about this too late. Would send a card but don’t know where you live! I’ll be thinking of you & your family with love & sympathy in this tough time. X O Chris Kinsella

You are all in my prayers and The Lord will be with you and comfort you through this hard time. He is with Cindy now in Heaven. God Bless all of you! Love- Vicki Laskoski

    I send my love and sympathy to family and friends of Bob Pelcher. I have tons of wonderful memories and stories about life on earth with Bob! I don’t think I can look at our great Lake Ontario and Genesee River without thinking of him… and that silly dog of his that used to swim behing the boat until Bob stopped and picked him up for the ride! Happy sailing, Bob!

    Reading Bob’s obituary brought back a lot of memories. My former husband played ball for the Horseshoe and thought a lot of Bob. I’m sorry to hear of his passing. (They called my husband Dude. I’m sure, if he was able, he would pay his respects.)

    To Bob’s Family, Bob and i became friends at the Hudson Ave fire-house(eng.16) both installers of storm windows and doors,working together both on the department and side job. My sympathy is with you at this time of sadness…………Mike Dox

    We are all sad of hearing of Bob’s passing. Where’s Meathead! was one of his welcoming calls. I first met Bob at the shoe for two, this is what we would say back in the 70’s & 80’s after work, heading up to the Horseshoe. He was a flamboyant guy with plenty of projects. God Bless him and his family.

    What can I say about Bob that you all don’t already know. I was pregnat and he gave me a job a place to live and in the heat of summer let me live on his boat. Do any of you remember his tee shirits? I will always be grateful and never forget you Bob.
