I was Blessed to be friends with Bob from my youth through decades in my adult life playing golf with Bob and his friends, especially David Derrick and Mike Philbeck, along with my Dad. I’ve never met a better person and friend than Bob, along with his late wife Phoebe. My condolences and sympathy to the family.

Bob was a good hard working man,
he helped me through some tough times the the way my Dad would have,
we also shared lots of good times and laughs.
My daughter Lyndsay also loved Bob.
He will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and all who loved him.
