Bob was not only my father-in-law he was my friend. Sometimes those two don't mix, but with Bob it was a relationship that worked wonderfully. Once he was upset with me on a fishing trip in Wyoming. Saying things like "you made a dam hole in the floor, letting in cold air" we were tent camping in early April, it was cold that week, but I had no idea what he ment about the hole? When we broke down camp there was a divit in the ground where Bob was sleeping at the edge of the tent. There also was a shovel next to the hole out side the tent in the gravel of the stream bed. I often think about that fishing trip and that hole. Why didn't Bob scoop a little gravel in the divit? The shovel was right there and he was the only one feeling the draft that week. Really I didn't feel to upset after finding the hole that so upset Bob, because he was one of the best fisherman I have ever had the pleasure to fish with he alwise had bragging rights, first one to catch, largest one of anyone else, most in a day... really I could only take so-much and a little cold air was worth it to cool him down a little. It's worth noting he was sleeping next to the furnace and I don't beleve there was to much of a draft that the furnace didn't makeup for. Not only did Bob teach me more about fishing he also thought me about friends and family. How to listen and help. when it's time to step in and when it's not. What a mentor we all have lost what a friendship I will miss forever. I promised Bob to take care of the family but he needs to know no on is as good at it as he is. He truly is a fisherman and he hooked me the first time we met
