Condolences to the family of Robert D. "Bob" VanSickle
Bob was a wonderful neighbor and friend to me and my husband Joseph, who passed in 2017. He helped us when Joseph was declining in health and continued to assist me when needed as long as his health permitted. A Good Samaritan to all.

The family is my prayers.
Bob always drove our bus for junior high intermural sports and many other times in high school but I best remember those trips in junior high. A bus half full of loud singing girls, he was so tolerant of us! He always let us have fun as long as we were seated! Many students would say, "Oh good, it's Bob" as we boarded the bus. I used to run into him around town from time to time and he always said, "Hey kid!" with his big grin, give me a hug then update me on the latest happenings. If Carol was with him she would patiently wait and smile as she knew it was hard to get a word in but that was something to love about Bob, he had the gift of gab! They broke the mold with Bob, he was a treasure to all!

So sorry we will your family in our prayers.
Bob was a great Lion, who contributed hours upon hours of service to the International Community. In addition to being a fantastic District Governor he accomplished a multitude of important missions. As editor of the Missouri Lions state newsletter, he performed this time consuming task in a stellar manner. He will be missed, but his legacy will remain!
Lion Tom Rayfield06-04-2022

So sorry for your loss thoughts and prayers for Carolyn and the family will miss Bob’s smiles.

I don't know what to say at a time like this as God has just taken my long time best friend except that I am sure going to miss you. Just thanks as you scared the devil out of me many, many times with your driving. You were like a brother to me and a second son to my parents as that is what they thought of you. Heaven just got a little bit better. Love you, man.
I am devastated to learn of Bob's passing. He was truly one of the good ones. Carolyn, I am so sorry for your loss.
Charles and Ruth Anne Portee06-10-2022
So sorry to hear about Bob and glad you called to let us know. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of Bobby's (as I knew him) passing. He was bigger than life. His wife Carolyn and I are related thru a joint great grandfather. Bobby & Carolyn would frequently stop to see my parents in Columbia, Missouri when they were traveling for Lion's activities. They were so kind to my parents. Although I never lived near Bobby & Carolyn, I saw them in Missouri, San Diego when we lived there, and of late when he drove a car from Lexington back to Missouri. It was always a pleasure to visit with him. Carole Seibert

I haven't seen Bob since I was in high school and he was driving our bus to track meets, but I still remember how kind and jovial he always was! A genuine soul always bringing joy to others. He will forever be etched in my memory that way. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
A good friend of ours for 50 years. Rest in peace good man. We know you will be missed by family and friends.

Sympathies on Bobby's passing. Wish we could be there in person with Carolyn, Larry, Sherri and the rest of the family and friends, but Dad's (Don's) current health situation doesn't allow it. Know that we are there in spirit, and thinking about / praying for all. May God's love and peace surround you Carolyn.
Carolyn, thoughts and prayers to you and your family. I hope you will join Power Partners Third Thursday lunches when you can. I am thinking of you and will call you.
