Bob was predeceased by his beloved brother and sister-in-law, Franklyn and Sheila Burns, his adored sister, Alice Faye (Henry) O’Shea and sister in infancy, Norma Jane.  He will be missed by the MacArthur family, especially by his brothers-in-law and best friends, Cecil MacArthur and Douglas MacArthur.
