Dear Bob Eason Family, Our Sincere Condolences on your loss. Bob was a longtime friend and colleague in his service as DSS Director in Carteret County and the State of NC. He was exceptional in his commitment to his profession and to all those that came his way. It was a pleasure knowing and working with Bob. We spoke a few months ago and he always inquired about Merle and Snow Hill since they grew up there… He will surely be missed by family and friends.
