Bob was a wonderful man with a wonderful wife, Betty, and family. Many fond memories growing up with the Holmbergs on Elm Street. He left a beautiful legacy and great memories. Bobby's eulogy was spot on and delivered so eloquently. Sorry I was unable to stop at the house after the ceremony to see and speak with Betty, Marilyn, Carolyn, Jeanette, Lorraine, Bobby and your families. Condolences to you from all of the Morse family.

Uncle Bob has created such a beautiful, and well planned, legacy! His footprint in this town and with his family is a very unique one! He is so kind and loving and helpful to anyone he met! There are so many memories I have of him that I couldn't possibly write them here, but my favorite one was driving to NH with him and Aunt Betty and Grandma and Grandpa in his Honey Bee camper. We were headed up the highway late at night and I was in the bed over the cab looking out the window watching for the man of the mountain. The moon was so bright so he could be seen so good. Uncle Bob was down there saying, See him? Can you see him? Will cherish that memory forever! Love you Uncle Bob and may you rest in the sweetest peace. ❤❤❤❤❤

To Aunt Betty and family, we are so deeply sorry for the loss of Uncle Bob! You All are in our thoughts and prayers and may the love of family and friends around you help bring you comfort during the days ahead. Love you all!

My deepest condolences to the Holmberg family for their loss. I grew up a few houses down from the Ski Doo shop and have so many fond memories of interactions with him during my childhood. Thank you Mr. Holmberg for both your service to our nation and the residents of Easton.

I wanted to let you know I have sent a message to the Bay State Antique Auto Club membership about Bob's passing. He was a great car enthusiast and many will remember him for his participation in club activities over the years.

I especially remember his 1936 Ford Standard at a club picnic ay Floyd Bent's home several years ago. I believe I was so impressed I had the photographer
take some shots and it was in a club calendar that next year.

Please accept my sincere condolences.

Sorry to hear about Bob. He will be missed. He was such a joy to be around and have a conversation with, including cars and sleds. He always had a great outlook on life and would warm a room with his presence. Rest in peace Bob.

Always kept us laughing with his jokes, sometimes naughty, never repulsive or disgusting. Best memories ever for us was our trip across country with Don & Candy Leonard, Bob & Betty and us, Floyd & Sylvia, each couple in their own motor home. Bob was designated "wagon master" and led the knowledgeable through each state. We shall miss him dearly and are so blessed for having known him.
