Simple words can't describe how much I will miss you.
You'll always be in my thoughts. I wish we had not lost contact with each over the years. Rest in Peace.

I just found out that Bob had passed away and I am really upset about it. I spoke with him a few months ago and he seemed happy and upbeat. I worked for Bob for about 4 1/2 years at Ryland in Houston and enjoyed every minute. I also enjoyed the time we spent away from work and I was lucky to have him as a loyal friend. Bob had both great knowledge of the homebuilding business and common sense to go along with it. I will always remember his smile and sense of humor. Bob touched a lot of people's lives and was a wonderful unique character who will be missed. I am sorry he left us so young. I always hoped I could work for him again someday and I am sorry that will never happen.

I feel so honored to have known Bob these last five years. I only knew him in a professional capacity, as his insurance agent, but I had the utmost respect for him. He was never anything but a pleasure to work with and I loved picking his brain about the housing market and his ventures into the restaurant world. He had such a friendly personality you couldn't help but love him and I will miss him dearly.

I am saddened by the loss of my dear friend Bob. He and I started in the home building business with General Homes back in the late 70's. We were both construction managers at Westlake Forest which was the starting point for both of our careers. A brilliant, interesting, funny man, and lifelong friend. Godspeed, Bob, you will be missed.

It has been a long time since I saw Bob. I worked at Ryland when he was Division President in Austin. He was always so nice to me. I was just thinking about him the other day when I came across something he had given me once to add to my collection of Dallas Cowboy stuff. It saddens me to know he's gone. My prayers and thoughts go out to his family.
