Joanne & I think of Bob every day as he spent a month in 1979 building excellent cabinets in our Worthman home kitchen. It was quite a challenge that I presented him with, but he was up to it.

I knew Bob for quite some time prior to that as my father and I installed the plumbing in new Worthman homes for 45 years.
