And Christopher Robin, I will never forget when we met. And then I went to your house in Florida. Your brother Jimmy was there too. Remember, Your Mom, Jimmy & his friend went to Disney world. Jimmy wanted to get on a ride, so I told him to put my brace on and get a wheelchair so he didn't have to wait on the long lines. It was so much fun.

A long time ago I met a Bob in high school. A door opened on life that lead to a long journey of friendship and laughter. A day doesn't go by where I don't think of him and all the good times we had. I am forever in his debt for teaching me what friendship really is.

"Always have something to look forward to. During your hardest times, have something to look forward to get you through.
If you are happy, nothing else matters. No one opinon, no judgement, and no ridicule. Do what you want becuase in the end thats what counts."
-My dad

I will always remember Bob's humor. That is the first thing, but deep down he was a serious man and I am happy that I spent some time with him and got to know that deeper part of him. He was always kind and had nothing but love for his family and friends. We miss you!

Bob made me laugh like no other... often until my sides ached. He seemed to lighten up a room when he shared his thoughts and his insights. He will be missed.

Remembering the time we drove to Colorado for Kylee's Baby shower. You were a great host. We surprised Kylee's mom at work and had so much fun while Baby gifts were opened. You shared with the world two beautiful daughters. We are s proud to call Kylee our Granddaughter. We sort of claimed Kymber too!
Rest in Peace Bob.
MaryAnn & Don Hulse

http://robert-dillon.forevermissed.comThe Holidays are coming and I can't help but think about all the Holidays spent with my Dad. He use to get excited like a little kid and he made my sister's and I's holidays so extraordinary and full of Magic. There was the Christmas my dad caught Mr.Jingles come on tape, the years the Easter Bunny really did come, the years he took us to the Santa Clause in the theaters, the year he made the best turkey on the grill (it was the best out the three others we had else where), the Christmas he convinced my Santa's present dropped out of his sleigh, and the year he kept trying to knock me off a sled in the snow behind his ridding lawn mower. I go into this Holiday season both with a smile and some tears. We'll miss your magic more then you know this year Dad!

 I think that to everyone losing someone like my dad has been hard. He had a way of making everything seem better, no matter what it was. He never missed a volleyball game or a band concert, and I knew I could always talk to him! I was always lucky cause I have always been really close to my mom and dad. I remember when we were installing the wood floors and a new sliding glass door. I came home and there was this big whole in the side of the house and the floor was bare. When we finally picked out a glass door and got it home we almost had it in when it fell, it shouldn't have broken but of course it landed on a drill and shattered all over the place. That didn't stop him though! I will never forget us making our table together, watching his concert movies with him, sitting on the bed and listening to records, him trying to teach me how distilling worked, trying to get me to believe that Santa was still real, him trying to teach me guitar, canoeing, and so much more. It was never weird for me spending so much time alone with my dad. Him, my sister, and I would go to Centera and watch a movie, it either had to be animated or one with explosions (Dad's request!) and then we would go to Rock Bottom where he would try to find out the recipe for the chicken wings. He got me hooked on Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Mission Impossible, Bruce Willis, Mel Gibbson, and Clint Eastwood. He was one of the funniest people I have ever met, and I can honestly say that he was the best dad anyone could ask for, and I am not just saying that! : ) I remember at my NJHS induction he and my step-dad contemplated walking up on stage in front of most of my class mates holding hands! Thank goodness they didn't. But if there is anything that I learned from him it was that life is too short to take seriously!  I will never, never forget my dad and everything that he did for my sister and I. I know that he won't be there for my graduation, me or my sister's weddings, or ever see either of us have kids but I am just grateful that I got him for 13 years, I feel pretty lucky that I have never fought with either of my parents and that I got that much good time with my dad! He was the most amazing man and dad.

I first got to know Bobby in our small high school in Dwight.  We were in a couple of plays together and he first impressed me with his juggling talent.  As much as he tried to teach me the skill, I just fumbled it.  He never gave up on me, even though he laughed hysterically at my feeble attempts.  He certainly taught me not to take myself too seriously.  When I hear other people comment on his love of music, I can only nod my head in agreement.  Everything we did had a musical aspect to it.  To this day when I hear Head East's "Never Been Any Reason" I think about riding around in Bob's car (named Rondo, by the way) and all of us singing at the top of our lungs.  There was also the day we bought a gallon of A&W Root beer and a gallon of ice cream and sat around drinking root beer floats and playing random songs for each other on Jeff's stereo.  Somehow Bob and Dan made a silly afternoon like that seem so much fun.  And I think that was Bob's greatest skill--making anything seem fun.  Even though we sort of lost touch when Bobby moved to Colorado, I hope he brought that zest for life with him.  I can't imagine any friend, old or new, thinking about Bob without smiling.  I'm so sorry for such a premature loss.
