Dad, I miss you so much everyday. I wish I would have had the chance to be able to tell you one last time how much I love and appreciate you. Give you one last giant hug and kiss. I wish we could have had so much more time. The boys miss you terribly, as do I. Love you so much. - Posted by: Michelle (Daughter) on: Oct 12, 2019
Bob was a one of a kind. I met him about 25 years ago, through Polar Windows. We had some great times together, and I will always miss his laugh, and his penchant for having fun. - Posted by: Jamie Allen (Friend) on: Sep 19, 2019
My deepest sympathies to the Champagne family from a distant cousin. My grandfather was first cousin to Robert Champagne's father Arthur Champagne Jr. I'm the Genealogist for the Champagnes. - Posted by: Richard Champagne-Girouard - Montreal, Quebec (2nd cousin 1x removed) on: Sep 15, 2019
