Nayda, our sincere condolences from our family to yours. I have so many great memories of Bob, mostly from the golf league at Southwestern Bell. Bob always asked me how my father was doing. He was able to combine being a true gentleman along with being a heck of a lot of fun! I'm saddened by his passing. I also want to apologize for not being able to attend his service as we are still in Naples. Please take care.

My deepest sympathy to the family. Bob and I were managers together at SWBell. I played on his overhand fast pitch softball team. We had many good times. He will be missed.

My condolences to the family. I’ve known Bob since his Benton installation days. We met in 1968. I was the drafting clerk in the group he was assigned to when he came to Engineering at 12th and Cleveland. Later, I worked with him when he had the work group at the Raytown garage. He was one of the good guys.
