Thoughts for Robert F. Belhumeur;

  • Scott, Chris,
    I’m so saddened to hear of your dad’s passing. My hope is you have a lifetime of rich memories to help you through the grief. I lost my dad 23 years ago and I think about him and miss him every single day. So Jan and I are keeping you and your family in our thoughts.

  • Scott and Chris, I’m so saddened to hear of your dad’s passing. I’ll always remember seeing your parents when we were playing gigs together many years ago, and in more recent years it was fun to see them still out dancing and supporting live music together. May your dad rest in peace, and forever be alive in your heart.

  • So saddened to learn of Bobby’s passing. Quite often we would get together during the Chassell Strawberry Festival and share stories old and new. He and Jeanine were always gracious and fun to be with. A brief memory comes back to mind of high school basketball practice. I severely injured my lower back to the point of immobility. Bobby helped me dress, carried me to his car, drove me home and literally carried me in the house. He also helped me wash and put me in bed. He aided my mother in contacting my father who was out of town. Never will I forget the help and times he came to see me as i convalesced.
    A testimonial to great person throughout his live. Rest in peace Bob.

  • Oh Jeanine I am so sorry to learn of Bob’s passing. I always liked seeing the two of you at all the outdoor music places. You so enjoyed music, dancing & traveling. You had so many wonderful years together. May your memories bring you comfort and peace. You & your Family are in my thoughts and prayers 🙏

  • To the entire Belhumeur family. I have the fondest memories of your Dad. He always brought a smile and genuine interest in others and I always felt better in his company. I ran into Bob and Jeanine a year or so ago at Captain Mikes while having lunch with my Mom and brother. It was so good to see both of them and it brought back so many great memories.

    We were so very sorry to read about Bob’s passing. We enjoyed working with you both at St. Elizabeth’s pantry & hearing about all your camping trips. He was a very, very nice man.
