Martha and Cathy, Deedee and I send our condolences to you and your Family. I have many good memories of working with Bob in the JC Penney store on Hillcrest Ave. 1968/1969. One of those memories is a weekend fishing trip to Lake Eufaula where we had a great time but caught only a few fish due to bad weather.
We worked together again 1975/1979 in the new JC Penney store at Macon Mall where we spent many long hard working hours to open the new store. Bob was a dedicated JC Penney Partner that worked hard to make the company successful by training associates while treating everyone with respect.
Bob will be truly missed by his JC Penney Family.

We have know Bob and Martha since Bob and I worked together in the new JC Penney store in Macon, Ga. starting in 1975. Bob and I were together again in the New Orleans market in the early 1990’s. We enjoyed many functions together in New Orleans and went on several cruises with them after our retirement in 1998. Bob was a true Penney Partner and he and Martha were among our best friends for over forty years. Charlotte Sue and I will miss Bob very much.
