This gent was the husband of my mother's cousin Nancy, and he was a fine man, and a fabulous husband to Nancy. He worked hard to keep his home, pool, and yard in top shape, and was a great cook too. In their home, I don't think Nancy ever cooked - Bob loved to do it and she was very appreciative, and loved him for the way he loved her. He and Nancy shopped at the Farmer's Market in Allentown, and used to bring my dad baked goods when he became homebound, and Nancy and her sister did the same for my mom, as well as take her out to dinner. This family is just thoughtful that way, and it's a blessing.
Nancy Ettinger Peters (1943 - 2013)
