Bobby McGill a father, a dad, grandfather, husband and good friend.
He was a hard working person from a humble beginning and worked in construction and started a contracting company.

He had a unique laugh when he laughed hard, sort of like a happy chuckle. He was personable in nature and you could talk to him and feel at home in his presence. This was evident in California when my Uncle Abe took me on the walk he and my father took on the day of his heart trauma. He and my uncle were a team stopping to chit chat with everyone who would listen. I know this because i chatted with one of them. And I was told this by people from the neighborhood who stopped by to give their condolences.

My father had an electric smile the kind that drew you in. He was the kind of person that loved you in his doing for you, but not as much in words, as when he did something for you it meant volumes, it made you feel important to him. For those who were his close friends it was binding and forever and i see several here today and he celebrated some of his friendships by traveling with them to many European destinations and sunny vacation spots. He was a man that transcended his past in many ways finishing his later years better than his earlier ones.
He was never one to shrug hard work but rather embraced it as i believe he embraced life's struggles, determined to win. Evident in his rich legacy that will go forward.
My father didn't do some things in life wisely but he was a man worthy of forgiveness.
When i was younger i felt safe and cared for and now i know he is safe in the loving care of our Lord and savior.

The Easter season will always have special meaning to me, because he will live...
