As you're driving west on 25th, turn left into the cemetery entrance opposite of Hardy Ave. Follow the drive path until you arrive at the Lakeview Cemetery sign on your left. You will see Old Bob's grave from your driver side window just to the immediate left of the Lakeview Cemetery sign.

Bob had an American flag and silk sunflowers marking his grave.
