So sorry to see the passing of Bob. I had the pleasure of working with him in the electrical trade, He was my "journeyman" mentor when i was an apprentice, We both worked for Sutherland Electric at the time. We worked together for a couple of years on various small projects throughout the Portland area. Bob was like a big brother to me. I am eleven years younger. He showed me how to be an electrician, When work slowed down in the local area,he helped me navigate the ways of having to work away from home. i have thought of him often and treasured his friendship during those years. He, was funny, wise, and he cared about his work. He was certainly proud of his family and let me know it. May he rest in Peace
