    My deepest sentiment and condolences to the Mize family. Bob certainly was one-of-a-kind. He had the best sense of humor that anyone could ever ask for. He always had a smile on his face and could definitely put one on yours. He had me rolling on ground on several occasions at the 19th hole. We lost a wonderful and truly caring man in Bob Mize. His presence will definitely be missed. Rest In Peace my friend!

    My condolences to family and friends of Bob. Knowing Bob is a bright spot in my life,.I am lucky to have known him. His wit, humor and outlook on life made him special. A particular memory of Bob will always bring a smile to my face. The memory was a story in the clubhouse that Bob, in his white shirt and trousers was mistaken for the 150 yard marker. HA! He will be missed

    Bob was a fine man. Family was alway first. I met him at the Grand Lake tournament several years ago along with his friends and family. 19th hole of course. He was maybe a 120 lbs. soaking wet. Bobby looks at us and says ” I think we are going to join your club”. From that time forward Bob brought a lot of smiles and laughs to the club. There wasn’t a soul who he did not have an affect on. He was a pleasure to know. My fondest memories are those at the clubhouse after our tournaments. OMG, what fun we had. Dont think I can repeat them here. You will never be forgotten. I’m glad I knew you.

    My condolence to the family. I have many fond memories of Bob “who’s your daddy” Mize (that phrase was coined at Silver Dollar golf tournament). I was fortunate that he befriend me when I first joined KMC and I’m appreciative of the time I got to spend with Bob, I enjoyed his humor and wit. Thank you for your friendship and camaraderie. Your spirit for life remains. R I P.

    It was a pleasure to have Bob and his family pass through my life. While my time with Bob was on the golf course or in the club house he was a great guy and always in great spirit. I feel honored to call him my friend. He will be truly missed. My prayers and thoughts to the family and friends. Rest in peace buddy.

    Bob was always in good spirits and always had his drink in hand after a round of golf. I’ll never forget his shot on #2 at Overland in our 4 man Calcutta, holing out from behind and to the left of the green with the hole on the far left of the green. An impossible shot but Bob pulled it off and then it took the other three of us several minutes to convince him that it really did go in!! Speaks to how humble and kind a spirit Bob was and I will miss him dearly.

  12. Liz Baker says:

    The wonderful stories and beautiful memories shared by Bob’s nephew, Thomas, are evidence of a man who lived well. Deepest condolences as you all celebrate the life of Bob Mize.

  13. Kendall Corrick says:

    My condolences to the entire family. We lost a good man last week. I had the good fortune of playing many rounds of golf with Bob. He loved the game and particularly loved the 19th hole. Bob Mize will be missed by me and everyone who knew him.
