So sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. Our parents were such good friends for so many years. The memories and good times are endless.

Dear Schmieler family, I am saddened to hear about the passing of Bob senior. I remember him always being present at the girls events and parties when we were young. His laughter, contagious smile, and positive energy has seemed to be passed down to your entire family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers and we are sending all our love.

Bob was a true gentleman. He was such a kind man with a big heart. He would have been a great father to have had. His children and grands were fortunate to have had him in their lives.

Long live Bob. The King lives on!!

Cookie and I have been in your family’s lives along time, and we’ve been through a lot of changes together. You know how much we cared about your Father and what a wonderful person he was. He will be missed! My own best memory of him was going to the high school football games against Strongsville and St. Ignatious and sitting in the pouring rain! What a great time we had together! You should be proud to have had a man like him in your life that you could Truly call a friend and a Dad!

Uncle Bob ... So kind, gentle and wicked funny too. On every 'big' occasion, we'd simply start to smile when Uncle Bob and Aunt Edie pulled in the drive. My thoughts are with Barb, Bob and Mary Kay - heaven is better b/c your dad is now in it. God Bless.

I met Bob through Edith -- we became fast friends 74 years ago. We shared so many times together as couples and as families too. A kind, gentle man, Bob was always first to offer help, no matter how difficult the job, moving, painting our house from a scaffold, even shoveling coal. Bob loved his wife, family and friends. I cherish the memories of both Edie and Bob, they were the best friends one could be blessed with and I take comfort knowing they are together. Thanks, Bob, for the years of love and friendship.

Being the Father of my best friend Bob I had the pleasure and honor of experiencing many fond memories of him. Always full of joy and always ready to help the other. He was such a blessing to be around and he always made me feel like I was a part of his family. I celebrate his life and my thoughts and prayers are with the family.

My deepest sympathy on the passing of Bob. When I was a child visiting my grandparents, the visit from Uncle Bob and Aunt Edith was always one of my favorite days. Bob was a kind man, and I have such fond memories of him. Sending love and prayers to you all during this time.

Deepest sympathy to the family. Uncle Bob and Aunt Edie were such a huge part of my life as long as I can remember and I loved them both dearly. I still have the dresser he refinished for me and remember him painting at the first house I owned. Whenever I would call with a question about a Saint, Aunt Edie would give the phone to Uncle Bob, telling me he was the authority on all things Catholic. Such a special man, he will be missed but I am happy knowing he is back with his love, Edith.
