Bobby was one of the nicest people I have ever met. I have known the Waibel’s for over 20 years and even though their house was full of children they always welcomed me to their table, in to their home and lives. I very much feel like one of the family and I will greatly miss Bobby with his warm smile and personality. Please know that the entire Waibel family is in my thoughts and prayers.

It was my sincere pleasure and honor to have worked with Bob over the past year or so. Bob’s calm, even demeanor and ability to work shoulder to shoulder with folks, always with that smile, brought order and optimism to what could otherwise be stressful times. I can only pray that your pain be eased by the knowledge of how truly good a man Bob was and that his time with his Kellogg friends and colleagues was a blessing for us. He will be sorely missed.

I met Bob in the early part of the summer of 2015 as I was also working at the plant in Jackson, TN. We worked together a lot over the past 6 months. During that time I heard a lot of stories about his family and all the places he had worked at it the past. We also talked about Honda Civics, as I have one also. He was a great man and always very nice to me. He will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you. God Bless.

My deepest condolences on your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Bob in Grand Rapids for several months and then again at Kellogg’s in Chicago. It was always evident that Bob’s top priority was his family, and he was always talking about his granddaughter. He will be sadly missed, and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I only knew Bob for a few short months while working at the Jackson plant as a contractor myself. But in having conversations with Bob during breaks, I know he loved his family and look forward to getting home to spend with you all. I could also tell he was a spiritual man and a Christian. My deepest prayers are being sent up for the whole family as you go through this difficult time of lose and grieving. Only comfort to send is that God has received a great angel to watch over his family and love ones. We can only go by faith that the Lord has a great plan for all things and his children. Bob left a special feeling in my heart the short time I knew him. Prayers Going Up.

Bob was a special colleague and fried to many of us in the Kellogg community. His work was exceptional and he was always a go to person when “wild” machines had to be “tamed”. While he was frequently called away from family on our behalf, he always kept his loved ones close to his heart. We will miss him and we send our thoughts and prayers to all mourning his passing.
