    Bob was a great guy and a good friend, he was always there when you needed him. We will miss him and he will remain in our thoughts for ever. I always looked forward to see Bob every year at the Chas T. Main reunion. I have known him since 1976 when I worked with him in Boston. May God rest his soul in peace!
