Bob and I worked together for many years although we had not been in touch for a couple of years. He was a good man, treated everyone with respect, was honest in his business dealings, had a great sense of humor, and above all was a caring friend to many. He had a heart of gold and would help anyone. My condolences to everyone who will miss him. And there are many.

We have such good memories of parties at the RedHouse with Bob and Judy, boat rides on Lake Sylvan, Marriuci Fiestas at Camp Confidence. Bob, always in the middle of the action - usually doing great caricatures of famous, infamous and just everyday people, like us. We will miss you, Bob!!
