I did not know him very well but knowing the grand lady he was married to I know he was a keeper. Our very best Luann to you and your family, it just doesn't seem right but life has no guarantees and we must always cherish the great memories and be thankful you were chosen to be that significant part of his life!

I worked with Bob for many years as one of the MidAmerican lawyers who supported his key account groups. He was a pleasure to work with. He was smart, respectful and friendly and an all-around good person. I am saddened to learn of his passing. My condolences and prayers to his family. Suzan Stewart, Sioux City
