I've known Bob for over 20 years, working with him at Ford, then Visteon. Being that I'm a musician, and his heavy passion for it, we could talk for hours on that subject matter.

As for working together, he helped me out immensely as a quality lead for the lab that I serve as a Technical Manager. He was meticulous and always by the book, and helped keep our lab accredited for 19 years. He will be sorely missed as a co-worker and a friend. Rest in peace Bob.

All my prayers to Bob's family. I just spent time with Bob & Brendan at a concert. It was wonderful to see father and son out enjoying an evening together! He was a great guy! Forever in our hearts Whitman Warrior!

My deepest condolences to the entire Plue family,

Bob was a fellow member of our small fishing club.
Our family cottage is across the lake from the Plue summer cottage on Ore Lake.

It was my fortune to meet Bob through working with his long time friends Tom Elsey and Mike Green. Over the years, the group of friends that would come out fishing formed into a 'fishing club' .

In 2013 Bob jumped in 100 percent, to help co-host our first tournament weekend event. It became a tradition that Bob enjoyed hosting at the Plue cottage with his family and friends.

Some years were tougher than others, a couple of years, the weather challenged us with some pretty big storms. But ever year, Bob was the best host, for him it really wasn't about the fishing, but the fellowship.

Bob’s charm and gift of fellowship and camaraderie were one of a kind. Thank you Robert , for the friendship, encouragement, and support throughout the years, but especially the memories.

Thank you Bob, and the entire Plue family, for your part in creating memories that we will cherish for a lifetime.

Rest in Peace my Friend.

I can't believe you're gone Bob. Your passion for magic started early on. I fondly remember the shows we put on for our families during the holidays. Of course, you were always the better magician. For whatever reason my magic didn't always work. LOL. I loved sailing and fishing with you at your family's cottage. What a great childhood we shared. Rest in peace dear cousin.

So saddened to learn of Bobs sudden passing. I enjoyed a wonderful friendship with him through RG youth group. I remember him walking to my house on Melrose in RG. That was such a special time in my life. We had such a great group of friends from church. He was one of the good guys. A good solid guy. I haven't kept up with many from back then. Hard to believe its been 40+ years. I send my sincere condolences.

Bob was a rarity among friends. From our first days of dating in 1979 through 2019 we've stayed in touch. 40 years. Wow. Friendship and staying connected was so important to Bob. He worked hard to keep his network of friends connected. I'm going to miss our occasional phone calls and texts. To his children, I can only say, that you had a great dad, he talked about you often and you were his absolute pride and joy, the most important thing in his life. Roger and Ellen, he really did look up to his older siblings. Although I know in high school, sibling sparring with you Ellen, was his specialty. Roger, thanks for loaning him your car for prom. To Elden and Lenore - my deepest condolences. He adored you both and all he ever wanted was to make you proud and I know he did.
Love,

I think that I first met Bob back in the mid 1990's, when we were both Engineers at Ford Electronics Div. We worked together on and off over the next couple of decades. I found Bob to be very sociable. He always found time to talk with me, not only on our joint projects, but whenever we met in the hallways or test labs. Bob was a terrific guy, and will be missed.

In the early 80's Bob and I were neighbors in a four-plex apartment in Plymouth. Bob was a great neighbor, always willing to lend a hand. He made CD's of great music like Bonnie Raitt and gifted them, he was my knight in shining armor when I heard a strange buzzing in my ceiling and he figured out it was a wasp nest and secured the hole I had curiously made with the end of a broom handle. And he occasionally shared some of his home cooked yummy food. When Bob and his friend joined me and my friend Jane on the MS 150 2 day bicycle fundraiser he provided the laughs, much needed!
Peace to his loved ones
