I was so sad to hear the news about Bob's passing. It's probably been over 10 years since I last spoke to Bob yet I used him as a reference in a story just this week. I am a remodeling contractor that was lucky enough to work with Bob for over a decade. Bob was a great man with a huge heart and work ethic to match. Bob was always willing to help on a job site, even if it was outside his scope of work. You always knew where you stood with Bob, I never knew him to hold back his opinion. I have fond memories of Bob not only on the job site but also on the golf course at our annual golf tournament where I played with Bob more than once. I only had the pleasure of meeting Betty a few times over the years but his love and respect for her is another memory I will always have of him. I still remember how he would light up when talking about her. Maybe a little small talk about what he was doing that coming weekend. You could see him perk up and talk about the rodeo he and Betty were going to or that they were going to see the grandkids. I am sorry that I wont be able to attend the services and meet his family and loved ones. All of those that he leaves behind should know there are several of us out here that wont let the memory and spirit of Bob be forgotten. I can still see his smile and bushy beard as though I had just seen him yesterday. RIP Bob
