I have just learned of Bob’s passing-my thoughts and condolences are with Geneva and all of the family. Steve and Bob were such great friends and golfing buddies and the four of us shared wonderful times together.
Bob was just enjoyable to be around-such a loving, caring person with a great sense of humor. I am thankful that I have those memories of he and Geneva and will surely miss him.
My heartfelt thoughts are also with Geneva at this time.

A wonderful man who would go out of his way to help others. I will cherish all my fond memories of the many golf trips we took together with so many of our mutual friends from Delphi. Bob, you were one of a kind. Rest in peace.
