  1. Such a great loving family man. Forever a part of my life. May he rest in peace and eternity. With all my love Uncle Bob.

  2. Am sorry to hear of the Ware family’s loss. My mom, Judy Darnell, worked at Ware’s many years ago. Bob was good to her and she has told stories of the quiet, classy acts of kindness performed by the family. Wishing strength and serenity in this time of grief.

  3. So sorry to hear this news. Bob was my first boss, back in 1976. He taught me many things, and some turned out to be life lessons that I have carried through to this day. I often recall something that I experienced back at Ware’s Pharmacy and how Bob guided me through it, and apply that where I am now. I am so grateful. My love to the family.

  4. A very kind and caring man, who, while I did not know all that well, always remembered my name…Rest in the Peace of the Lord, Bob…many will miss you greatly.

  5. We have lived in Mason our entire lives and have known the entire Ware Family. Our love, Respect and Prayers are being sent to all. Dennis & Sharon (Miller) Whipple

  6. I am so very sorry to hear about Mr. Ware. Such a kind and wonderful man. I loved to talk to him and Erma. He was always funny and patient with me. Frankly, I wonder how he never seemed perturbed when I visited the drugstore and asked a zillion questions about…. everything!! I remember buying the huge stuffed pony they had in the front window one Christmas. I worked at the bank next door. Instead of taking it home and hiding it, he let me make payments and we stored it at the bank in the lobby with the Christmas carriage! He was an amazing man with an equally amazing family! Rest in Peace Mr. Ware. You will be missed.
