Was just sitting here thing about Bob Cobb, my ham radio buddy. Sad to google/find him here & hugs to the family. Been a few years since the '70s, but we checked in with all of our buddies on the sewer net on 146.520.

Big Bob as I called him was just like a second father to me growing up. He was always there to give advice and be a mentor to us boys in the neighborhood! RIP Big Bob! We'll see you on the otherside! Love to Mom, Larry, Susan, Linda, Jack, and the entire family.

We have many fond memories of Bob and our family including holidays, weddings, get-togethers, etc. Bob cared so much for his family, all of us. I will always remember his laugh. When he got laughing, it was a true belly laugh and that sticks in my mind. Bob will remain in our hearts and souls forever, until we reunite again. We love all of you.....
