So sad to hear of Robert’s passing.
We had been friends through school and after college, began our separate careers and lives. Recently reconnected. He will be missed, a very good person and good friend. Rest In Peace . Prayers to the family.

I was lucky to have spoken to Bob on a number of occasions, as we worked through transitions at work. I was pleased that the team he was assigned to manage was blessed with such a kind and obviously smart manager, so I knew they were in good hands. Bob was always available to share ideas and answer questions, a pleasure to work with always! May Bob's family be showered with good memories in the years to come.
God Bless and please take good care of each other during this difficult time.

Thank you for sharing Bob with us at United Telephone. I met him first at a meeting in Florida many years ago. He was a technical warehouse of information and willing to share! God blessed us all with this man.

So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a great co-worker who I highly respected. My wife Lynn and I both knew Bob from working with him at Sprint. Our condolences to all his family and friends.

Bob was a big part of IT, but what I remember was his contribution to the blues brother band we had at UTF. He carted the console organ around in his truck from event to event. He was out roadie you could say. My condolences to friends and family.

Blessings to all.

I was very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I worked with Bob in Florida from 1983 to 1996. I always recognized that Bob was a very smart and hard working technical expert. Because of his special skills, I remember that he was often selected to be involved on special projects addressing technological change. Over the years I worked with Bob, I often asked him for his opinion on technical matters. He was always pleased to help.
My condolences and best wishes to his family.

I first met Bob as an intern for my very first internship with Centurylink in 2012. He gave a very warm greeting and immediately could tell he had a down to earth attitude. What I really respected about him he was very straight up but very gentle in his approach. He coached me on things that I did well and if I needed improvement, he was not shy in telling me. That stuck with me the most because he actually cared in seeing me be a contribution to the company and his team. Prayers go out to the family. He will be missed.

I haven't seen Bob since I retired from Sprint over 22 years ago, but I remember him well. I worked with Bob on several Sprint projects and I was always impressed with his professionalism and intelligence. Great guy, I'm sorry to learn that he is gone.
