In 1964, Bob moved the family to Wagoner, Oklahoma, where he owned and operated General Heating & Cooling for about 40 years. Bob was very active in the community. After he surrendered his life to Jesus in 1983, he was also very active in ministry. Bob and Sue moved back to Claremore in 2004.

The family wishes to express their appreciation to the staff at the Claremore Nursing Home and the nurses with Compassus Hospice for their warm and attentive care, Dr. Mark Bishop with Claremore Indian Hospital for his medical care and biblical mentoring, and pastor Steve McElwee at the Little Rock Church for his spiritual guidance.

I have good memories of the times all the Tanner's were together--I especially enjoyed the Thanksgivings at Joe and Wahnee's place. My thoughts are with the family.
