Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Robert (Bob) Wayne Estrup, 73, of Pensacola FL passed away June 27, 2017. Bob was a native of Chicago, IL and was the youngest son born to Theodore Leonard and Frances Marie Estrup. He graduated from Lane Tech High School and worked as a lifeguard during his last year in High School as well as during summer breaks while in College. He attended St. Olaf College in Minnesota and received his Bachelors of Science in Mathematics. While attending St. Olaf he joined the USMC in 1966. Upon graduating, he served his country as a CH-46D pilot in the Purple Fox squadron in Vietnam, and discharged from active duty in 1971. He then attended the University of West Florida in Pensacola, FL and earned a Bachelors of Science in Accounting, working for many years as a Certified Public Accountant. He retired from Piping and Equipment as a Comptroller in 2010. He was a member of the USMC Combat Helicopter Association, and the Sertoma Club in Pensacola.
His was preceded in death by his father Theodore, his mother Francis, his brother Ted, and his son Carlos.
He is survived by his wife of 19 years, Susan Estrup; a son, Matthew (Matt) Estrup, his wife Dorothy Anne (DA) and their son Austin, his wife Sandra and their son Gabriel and daughter Katie Rae, and their daughters Mary Jane and Eva; a daughter Sandra Dru and her daughters Avalon, Trinity, and Avian; a daughter Ana and her son Raine; a son George (Junior), his wife Cassie and their sons Trenton, Raymond, Skyller, and Avory; a son Joshua (Josh); and a daughter Rebecca (Becca) and her son Riley.
Bob was a man of habit, quiet, and of high moral character. He was meticulously disciplined and held intelligence, reason, and healthy living in high regard.
To those who knew him well, Bob was kind and thoughtful. He enjoyed telling stories about his years as a “Marine pilot… Oorah.” He was very active and had a deep appreciation for the great outdoors. You could find him riding his tandem bike with his beloved wife, taking trips to various destinations together, going for long walks, or just enjoying the peaceful quietness of the early morning hours with a nice, black cup of coffee.
In the last few months of his life, despite being sick, he became very determined to ensure his wife would be cared for, as much as possible, in his absence. This was not unusual since he was always ready to help whenever he could. He loved the Lord and did not fear death, knowing his final destination would be with the Almighty God and His Savior Jesus Christ.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Peoples Home Health for all of their care and dedication of our beloved Bob. They would also like to thank the congregation of Generation Church for their loving support of our family during this challenging time. There will be a Memorial Ceremony with Military Honors at Barrancas to determined.
To clarify, "Bob stands for Best Of Breed," as he often would say!
Graveside Tuesday July 18,2017 at Barrancas National Cemetery at 1:30 p.m.
