Robert K. “Bob” Laird, 90 of Macomb, passed away Thursday, October 10, 2019, at Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Illinois.  He was born October 25,1928 in Colchester, to Charles and Virginia Hunt Laird.  Bob was united in marriage to Bonnie Booth on December 8, 1950, in Seattle, Washington.

Bob’s greatest joy was spending time with his wife and family.

    Dear Bonnie and sons,

    I was so sorry to hear of Bob's death.  He was my mentor at Hemp and Company a million years ago.  He might have actually been my boss but org charts didn't mean much at Hemp's in that era.  He was always a warm and welcoming person, very congenial and with a dry sense of humor. Very dry.

    I has the distinct pleasure of visiting Bonnie and Bob a few times in recent years when I made pilgrimages to Macomb.  It was great fun to relive a few episodes from the past with them.

    Please accept my deepest condolences in you great loss.

    Best regards,

    Ivan Keithley
