Happy 70th Birthday my sweetheart. I wish I were planning a surprise like I had for your 50th. Remember you went and got the new boat in the fog because you wanted to drink a beer in your new boat on your 50th and when you got home your bestest friends were waiting on you. I miss you daily you are here beside me at work and by my side at home. Love you forever..

Oh Bob, your amazing stories will live on in our memories! You had so much character, it was a pleasure to know you!! I remember the days at the Bloomington office, happy hours at the Sports Page, then the move to Eagan, and the happy hours at the Valley Lounge or LaFondas. You were so smart and oh so sarcastic! I realized that if you DIDN'T give me crap, it meant you didn't care. Thanks for all the crap!

My best friend in the world, my sweetheart, my husband left me to go with the angels. I miss him so much. Our home is like an empty shell with out him. I'm not sure what to do with myself when I come home from work. We had such plans. I have so many stories but I will just leave one. We were on our way to Canada for a fishing trip. We stopped at Mille Lacs for a quick turn on the lake. I rigged up my line with my special stuff that Bob always said would not catch anything and always did, and caught a 31 in walleye. We were both excited. He got the camera took lots of pictures. When we got home we found that he had not put any film in the camera. Oh how we laughed..

Volpe-isms

Bob had a way of saying things that no list will ever be able to capture.  His mastery American language, his timing and delivery were an envy of all of who knew him.  Even though his comments were aimed directly at many of the contributors to this list, we all knew where Bob' s heart was .....so...

Bass Story

Shared by Dale Walker on April 12, 2016

On one of our fishing trips we had just landed our boat on the island on which we were going to camp for the weekend. I had climbed out of our boat to pull it on shore when I looked over at Volpe whom had just landed his boat near us. He grabs his fishing pole right away and turns to his right. There is a large tree stump hanging 2 feet out of the water.  He says "If I were a fish I would live right there!" and casts his line out and hooks into a bass. We were amazed. He takes the bass off and throws it back. He then states "If I was that fishes brother I would live right there as well" and casts his line again and shit you not he caught a second bass. We once again were all astonished. So of course he says "I wonder if his sister is home" and casts a 3rd time, However she was not home.   

Tent blown into edge of the lake

Shared by Dale Walker on April 12, 2016

Our tent was uprooted and landed at the edge of the lake. We fished it out and duct taped the poles to hold it together to get us through the night after the storm.
