Bob was a great neighbor to my parents, Carrie and Richard Harrison on Turnberry Court. He made sure Dad had his newspaper at the front door every morning! Bob was a treasure and a blessing to our family. He lived Jesus’ command to “love thy neighbor as yourself.” Condolences to your family.

Sorry to hear of Mr. Sooy's passing. One of Brigantine's pillars, he was always a nice guy and quick with a joke. My condolences to the family and may he rest easy.
