  4. We are so very sorry for your loss. Bob’s legacy goes deep and broad as it is well-known the many contributions to so many lives, projects and more. His family and work is a testament to Bob’s sense of faith, family, ethics, and hard work. It is a privilege to have known him. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his beautiful family.

  5. Bob Kane was an wonderful example of a man who touched the lives of so many who had the opportunity to know him. His children, grandchildren and great grandchildren are a prime example of his outsanding presence in their lives. I shared with Mary that I, myself, have so many vivid memories of him during my wonderful childhood years which I spent at the Kane’s house on Magdala Drive in Parma. I remember his wonderful sense of humor, his passion for his believes and values, and the fun stories which he would often tell again and again. I always looked forward to being invited to spend time at the cottage where he was often involved in some kind of project which he would proudly show to me and explain in detail. I am so sorry that I will not be able to make it to Ohio for the celebration of his life and his passing into the next. Although I will not be there in person I will be in spirit and prayer. Peace and love to you all.

  6. Our condolences to the Kane family and please know that our prayers are with you…May the angels escort Bob into paradise that he may see his Saviour face to face and be given the joy of his eternal reward…
    Though Bob and Grace had been here at Tamberlane but for a short 2 yrs, during the winter season; neighbors, Mary & Arthur, Vickie, & Doris came to know and appreciate them as our neighbors and to share some happy times with the family…

    We will miss Bob but know that Grace and her family are a strong loving and christian family and will always have their father in their hearts…and share his love…

    Tamberlane neighbors…

  7. Deepest sympathy of the passing of Robert J. Kane, brother
    of Rev. Eugene Kane. Viewing the photo of Mr. Robert J. Kane
    in today’s Plain Dealer brought back fond memories of Rev.
    Eugene Kane, the smile and resemblance is unmistakable.
    Rev. Eugene Kane was my high school religious educator at
    the then Nazareth Academy. Acquiring a position at the
    Department of Veteran Affairs cross paths once again with
    Rev. Eugene Kane, tall in stature always with the smile
    just like Mr. Robert J. Kane. Rev. Eugene Kane would often
    speak of his loving family. Once again my deepest sympathy
    and prayers to your family.

  8. Very sorry to hear about the death of your father. May you be comforted in knowing that God has put him in the place he belongs.
    Laura and Ken

  10. Dear Kane family….Our deepest condolences go out to your whole family on the loss of a kind gent. The connection of Bob & Grace with our family goes back a long way and we know the pain that you are going through. I will remember his sense of humor his kindness and his decency and in being such a good friend to my folks throughout the years. I also remember the fun that we had at Pleasant Hill Lake and all of the gatherings with my folks. My wife & I still have the Browns hoodies that Grace & Bob gave us many years ago. Unfortunately we will not be able to be with you in Ohio but we will be with you in spirit. May the comfort of God be with all of you at this time.

  11. Knowing Mr. Kane was a gift to our family. He always greeted each of us with his terrific and loving smile. Jim, myself and our children will forever treasure having known him, the memories will live on in our hearts. Peace be with all of you.

  12. Hello Marie, Mike and Colleen,
    I am sorry to read about the death of your grandfather. I know it has been a long time since I have seen you (Padua High School) but I pray for all my students, present and past, daily.
    You are all in my prayers during your special time of need.
    Mrs. Woytek

  13. We are so saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. I have the fondest memories of Bob, Grace, and the entire family at the Pleasant Hill Lake cottages. And of course, the last day water fight. I will remember Bob as always having a smile on his face, and very happy to see you … just a truly wonderful man. My deepest sympathies to Grace, Bobby, Kathy, Denny, Mary and Rosie. My parents and their friends are all family to me. I wish I could be in Ohio, but my prayers and thoughts are all for you. I know that my father, Jake, has another buddy to go golfing and fishing with now. I’ll raise my glass to the them both tonight.

    “May you be as free as the wind, as soft as the sheep’s wool, as straight as an arrow, that you may journey into the heart of God.”

    God Bless You All

    John O’Malley
