It was my good fortune to meet Bob in 1990 when I became Assistant Town Counsel. He was unfailingly helpful and good-natured, even when my requests of him must have been annoying. He was a model public servant and the Town was lucky to have him all those years. I’m sorry he had such a short time to enjoy his retirement, which was well deserved. My deepest and most sincere condolences to his family and dear friends.

Bob was one of the best people I have ever known. He helped everyone, all the time. His service to the Town of Marblehead was selfless. I will miss our long conversations and be lost without his guidance. I hope he knew how much he meant to his coworkers and friends.
My sincerest condolences go out to his family, what a very great loss to the world.

Bob & I worked together years ago and always tried to keep a good working relationship. Last September on a trip back to Marblehead, I ran into him at the Mary Alley. He was on a "break" and we had a long conversation about his upcoming retirement. I invited him to come down to No. Carolina for a visit, wished him well and we gave each other a parting hug. I wish he could have had more time on this earth.

I met Bob when I was hired at the town accountants office in 1983. His desk was behind me. He was a very kindhearted man. When I found out I was expecting my first baby I told Bob. Smoking was allowed inside during those times. When he found out that I was pregnant he started smoking outside. That gesture told me what kind of a man he was and I’ll never forget it.
When his sweet wife, Caroline, passed away he was devastated. I was working at the credit union in the same building, so once a week I made him a meal for supper and called it curb side supper. When he left work at 5 he would swing by my house and I’d bring the meal out to him. Next day I would find the clean empty plate on my chair at the credit union. This continued for about a year and I was happy to do it.
I’ll miss him terribly, he was a great friend.
