I was friends with Bob for over 30 years. No matter what was going on in my life, he could always make me laugh. I was stunned to hear of his passing and deeply saddened. My prayers are with him and his entire family.

I worked with Bob for 15 years at Schmidt. He was such a great story and joke teller. He kept everyone laughing. He was my friend and mentor and I will miss him deeply.

I worked with Bob for 15 years at Schmidt. Everyone loved listening to Bob's stories and jokes. He always kept everyone amused who knew him. He was my mentor and my friend. I will miss him greatly.

The best memories of Bob will live forever in the hearts and minds of his family and friends. His intelligence and wit will not be forgotten.

Our deepest sympathy to his family. We knew Bob from our days at the University of Illinois. His sardonic wit and self-deprecating sense of humor endeared him to all. At a time when most of us were listening to the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Beach Boys, Bob's stereo was always playing Sinatra classics like "All the Way," "Witchcraft," and "Strangers in the Night." Going forward, whenever I hear "My Way," I'll remember "the 'Dice."

Bruce...I know that it was expected, but that doesn't seem to make it any easier when it does happen. Hang in there, my friend.
