Brother Bob and I were practically twins; we were only 1 1/2 years apart. He was my big brother and I emulated everything he did! I nearly drove him crazy by shadowing his every footstep. One summer we visited Chuck and my sister in northern KY; Bob decided to stay. He got a job at AT&T, and so did I. He got married, and so did I. He attended the Baptist Church, and so did I. He joined the Masonic Lodge, and so did I. Now, can’t you see how close we were? Recently, Faye and I took cousin Wayne and his wife, Diane, to visit Bob. We had a ball sharing northern KY again though the eyes of his grandsons. Bob’s eyes sparkled when they walked in the room!
He laughed and laughed as the jested about us two Waynes.
What a magical time we had together again! I’m so happy we had that final visit together. Yes, my young buddy is gone, but praise God, we will meet again. May you Rest in peace Bro Bob…
A Tribute to Our Brother: Bob Aldridge. Bob was a quiet, reserved, good man who could do anything! As a child, he would “tear things apart and put them back together again”. He graduated from high school early, spent 2 years at UC, and got a great job at At&T in Cincinnati. Even though he came from humble beginnings, Bob worked hard to become a millionaire. He unselfishly gave his time to building for Humanity, helping any sibling or friend out when they needed him. He was a perfectionist. He was a good father to his children and a sweet husband. Bob was very close to his siblings, esp. Gene and Reba, and kept in touch through his Parkinson’s disease. One could barely understood what he said, yet, everyone continued to call him and love him. Bob was in our daily prayers. We all will have many memories to last us a lifetime and he will be sorely missed forever. Go gently into that good night Bob for we shall meet you in Heaven with our siblings who have proceeded us. All your sisters and brothers will be at your Funeral Service today and we will follow you to your graveside. Goodnight sweet brother; we love you.
Your Brothers and Sisters .
Our prayers are with all of you. You are a wonderful family. May Mr. Aldridge rest in peace.
MaryLou, we were so sorry to read of Bob’s death. Such fun memories we have of our years with you and Bob at camp in Petersburg. We pray for you and your family to find peace in these first hard days. Then to always rejoice in the wonderful years you had together. With love, Carole and “Fuzzy”
May Mary Lou and kids find peace of heart knowing that Bob is resting in peace. Love Gary and Carolyn
