    I saw the notice of Bob’s passing posted at the Kalamazoo Elks #50 Lodge. At first I was taken aback at the loss of a really good man. Then I thought back about all of the good and guidance that Bob Sadler gave to both me & the Lodge.

    Robert Sadler was a good and wonderful friend who epitomized to me everything that a good friend, a good Elk and a good example to other Men should be.

    I’ll miss you Bob!
