Bob was a terrific artist. There are many landscape painters, but Bob’s paintings take the viewer right to the spot where he painted - you can feel the warm wind, hear leaves rustling. I don’t understand why he was not more well known.

Bob & Jeanne hosted me several times in their lovely home, 2016 - 2019, when I traveled to Twin Cities from Colorado. My frequent trips were dealing with ramifications from my crazy mother moving into, then out of assisted living, then back again into assisted living . Those were very stressful circumstances, so I was grateful for the sanctuary of Bob & Jeanne’s home - complete with fantastic food, wine, comfort. Jeanne is a terrific cook ( as is Bob with grilled fish ! ).
Bob always had an array of good wines, yummy cheeses & snacks ready before dinner. Such succor.

The last time I saw Bob was in August of 2019. He’d just gotten home from a couple weeks in rehab. His spirits were good, but his body was weak. He said something about never going back to rehab - which of course was the perfect cue for Amy Winehouse’s song, “Rehab”. . . . which I dialed up. Bob & I danced and sang the refrain with Amy Winehouse,
“ They tried to make me go to rehab, But I said, "No, no, no”. “

So that’s how I’m going to remember Bob Frink : smiling, dancing and singing.
RIP Bob.
