    My deepest, heartfelt, sympathies to the family of Robert Ernhart. Bob was not only a close relative, but also a very close personal friend of my family, especially of my father, his Uncle Ray Kohler. I have many fond memories of time spent hunting and fishing with Robert and his boys, Steve, John, and Jarod! Robert will truly be missed!

    With Deepest Sympathy,

    Tim J. Kohler

    I want to give my deepest sympathy to Bob’s family. I was a classmate of his in the class of 1960. Bob was always friendly and outgoing. It was a real pleasure knowing him.
