Bob was my boss at IH, and I couldnt ask for a better mentor. I learned more from him than any other superior about manufacturing, people, loyalty and just life in general. And, he could really tell a funny joke!

It was also great having breakfast with Bob and his daughter Janet and hubby at St James a couple years ago. Brought along a few IH cronies and he was in his element.

Thoughts and prayers for the Horwedel Family. Thanks, "Smoke"! Rest In Peace.
