Our sympathies to his entire family.
Bob was always glad to open the antique ship, even a year after we spied some treasure. Even when his foot was bandaged he was cheerful and helpful. When I was no longer driving, he dropped a heavy gift item off for me. I am sure he will be sorely missed in all his realms.
I played for Coach Springer in the early 80's at Dulles HS. He was a mentor and a father figure to me. He taught me so much more than basketball. I had the opportunity to visit with him a couple of years ago at the TX HS Basketball Hall of Fame in Brenham to catch up. He was so proud of it. I loved it.
Coach, you will be missed! Thank you for believing in me. A lot of my success in life is because of the confidence you instilled in me at age 14-17. May you rest in peace.
I first met Coach Springer in 1968 while I was playing basketball for Memorial High School. In
the years that followed we would get together periodically. He would come by the bank where
I worked and we would visit about the Texas Basketball Museum he was so proud of and our
bank would buy an ad in his Texas High School
Basketball Magazine. But what I enjoyed most
about being around Bob was just "talking hoops"
with him! Coach Springer touched a lot of lives
and I'm glad mine was one of them. Kavin and I take comfort in knowing that Coach Springer is now healthy, happy and in Heaven with Our Lord Jesus Christ and we hope that brings comfort to Karen and the Family as well!
God Bless Coach Springer!

I always enjoyed coaching against Bob when he was coach at Dulles High School and I was coaching at Spring High School in the early 80's. Bob was a tremendous competitor and a great ambassador for boys basketball in Texas. My deepest condolences to the family.

Karen and family,
I was so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. He was one of my regular “to go” customers at JWs. Always kind, always friendly. RIP Bob.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know the pain you have , as I lost my husband, your uncle Kenneth Freeman on September 3, 2022 at our home in Montgomery. I will not be able to attend the service for Bob. You have my sympathy . Love, Aunt Margie Freeman
I was sad to hear about Bob’s passing. I was fortunate as a young coach to be able to spend time with Bob when he and Coach Coleman would get together. I especially remember the fun we had each year at the State Tourney. When I left Memorial, Bob replaced me. I hope that he enjoyed his stay at Memorial and that it enhanced his life as well as his family’s.
