Rick & Carol and family, so sorry to hear of your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting your dad on several occasions and had know idea of his distinguished military carrier and community involvement. When I met him I found him to be a very pleasant man with love of his wife, family and farm with a beautiful twist on life. Long last the memories of a special man and God Bless you All. Pat Roiger

Sharing photo of Bob, my dad Bob Crampton, Charlie Crampton and my son Emmit Crampton Beal taken in 2011 in Vail, IA. We had many lovely visits with Bob and Irene and family in Iowa and treasured their times with us in Minnesota. There are people who light up rooms and lives. Bob was one of them. We know his social calendar is full in heaven; we are thankful for having known him. Our sympathy and love from Minnesota. Sherrie, Brad and Emmit

Bob and Irene were are neighbors on the farm. We enjoyed them both so much. Randy and Rick would come off the bus to be at our house when Bob and Irene were not at home yet than. I will treasure all these memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with Randy and Rick, also your families. God's Blessings!!

I am so very sorry to hear this! Prayers to all the family. Bob was quite a character and I always enjoyed visiting with him in the beauty shop at the reed place. He took such wonderful care of Irene for years and would always visit her and pop his head in to say hi. When he became a resident, we had some great conversations. He always talked about the love of his life, Sweet Irene. May you rest together in peace!đź’—
