I knew Fr. Bob from his time in Fond du Lac. I really enjoyed how he would give a little introduction to the readings. He would explain how life was back then, so different from now. Rest in peace 💖🌹💔

My deepest sympathies to Fr. Bob's family .... I have had the privilege of working with Fr. Bob at Holy Family in Fond du Lac his entire time there ....I served for many of his Masses for funerals, and for weekly daily Masses .... he always had fantastic messages in his homilies to the parish and the families .... I will always remember his great smile ...

Father Bob was the nephew of Sister Carol Stiefvater, a member of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity. I am Sister Caritas Strodthoff whose mother, Hallie was a Stiefvater. Her grandfather, Stephen, was a brother to Sister Carol's grandfather Carl. So we are all related. I met Father Bob when he was Pastor at Holy Family in Fond Du Lac. he was a delightful priest and he will be missed very much. But now he is with the Lord who he loved and served so very faithfully all his life. Peace to his relatives and all who knew him. Sister Caritas
