We will miss Bob and his winters in Florida. We had many good times with this wonderful man. Our hearts break for all of his family please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. We will think of him every time we hear Delta Dawn, he had everyone at dinner on the cruise singing it. I had a J one S for you with Henry. Love you Mr Pack

My Uncle, Bob Pack, was a wonderful man. He was always very generous with everything he had, both with family and friends. He held the hand of his Mother, Harriet Pack, when she was dying in the hospital in 1978. When my mother, and Bob's sister, Jean Pack passed away in 1990, Bob and Norma came back from the middle of a Caribbean vacation to be there to support everyone. He has always been like a second father to me, and he was just a fun guy to hang around with, whether it was watching Michigan State football, or peeling shrimp on the deck in Destin, Florida. His passing leaves a huge hole in our family that will never be filled. Rest in peace, Uncle Bob, we love you.

Bob, Norma and the entire Pack clan accepted the McMurrays into their lives as their own. I remember the countless Xmas gatherings in Pontiac playing cards and laughing uncontrollably. Uncle Bob was the spirit of positivity and generosity. He will be greatly missed but his spirit will live on in all of us.

Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of love to myself and siblings after the death of my father recently. It is a comfort to know he was loved by many. I love you and your comforting hugs, words, and thoughts have meant a lot to me. Thanks a million.

Our sincere condolences to the Pack Family. I recall our first meeting like it was last week, always positive over the years. I will miss you the number one Spartan Fan! Best to you all. Bill Grombala

Growing up across the street from the Bob Pack was always a learning experience. I learned what a true Spartan fan was like, I learned what a “buller” was, I learned what the Pack kids “come home” whistle was, and I learned what a “filly” was. But most of all I learned what a kind and full of life gentleman Bob Pack was. Sharon and I will always remember his humor, his generosity and that infectious smile. We can see Bob up in Heaven mixing the cocktails and grilling the steaks. He will be missed but as long as we all have memories he will never be truly gone.
— Bill and Sharon Donnelly
Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Even after so many years I remember him as the "life of the party"! Fond memories of the summer we all went to Mackinaw Is. on dad's boat. Sandy, Bobby, Billy and Ritter...my condolences.
