    Bobby, was always like the Rock of Gilbralter, silent strong and steady. A quiet doer, always there for everyone all his life. Bobby was one of the best men we knew, and one of the best kids and one of the best boys, we knew, always steadily one of the best and kindest of God’s children and God must have needed the very best of angels when he called Bobby. So very sorry for your loss to the whole Stanton family and spouses. Love, Pat & Cheryl Maroney
