I would like to extend our sympathy to Judith, and her family upon the loss of her husband, and their father, and grandfather. Bob was a nice guy, as is Judith. I went to school with Judith.

I was so sorry to read of Bob's passing. I will always remember Bob as a friendly, nice person. Judy, you had a good man when you married Bob, and he in turn had a good woman in you. I send my love, hugs, and prayers to you and your family. May God be with the Noreuil family at this time.

Bob was my playmate as we grew up in Tovey and my teammate and classmate as we attended Tovey Grade School and Kincaid High School. My remembrances of Bob were a true gentleman, a patriot, and an overall kind human being. I thoroughly enjoyed reminiscing with Bob about our early years when we would meet by chance. May God bless the Noreuil family at this time of grief. Rest in Peace, my friend.

Bob was my classmate through our years at Tovey Grade School and Kincaid High School. He was quiet most of the time and genuinely nice all of the time. I feel lucky to have seen him again at the last class reunion we had several years ago at the Tovey pool hall, Bart's Place. May he have God's peace and love throughout eternity.
