My condolences to your family. I grew up in Quaker City across the street from the Spratts. Bob and I were childhood friends, went thru school together, Joyce and I were cheerleaders together for the QCHS basketball team. Because we were a small school and community we did everything together. I have very fond memories of Bob and Joyce. In 1963 we were living in Lorain. Newly wedded They stopped by for a visit. Sincerely. Jean Ann Morgan Abbott.

Bob and Joyce.... FAMILY.
The 3 girls...FAMILY.

that is how we always felt about the Spratt's.  Bob was a sweet, kind and gentle man.  He and Joyce will forever be in our hearts.

We're very sorry we could not attend today's services.  Dad would love to have been there, but he's fighting to get healthy himself.

You are loved.  God bless you all.

Uncle Bob! I have so many great memories of Thanksgiving at Grandma Spratt’s house, Cleveland Browns football games, visits to Cedar Point, visits during festivals. Your sense of humor was infectious! You will be missed!

I remember playing golf with Bob during one of his and Joy's visits to Florida.  Bob loved to look for lost golf balls between shots (not his own, he was a pretty good golfer).  I was always reminding him that we have alligators and snakes in Florida, but that never stopped him from going into the woods or down around the ponds.  I think Lisa found out where he kept all those balls he found (boxes and boxes in their basement).  Bob was a great father-in-law and I enjoyed his company.  I'm sure he's enjoying long walks with Nina and Bing now like he used to.
