I knew Bobby as a fellow railroaderk Although we were seldom working on the same territory together.
I did enjoy working again with him on the few occasions that we did get a chance to do so.
The one thing that sticks with me is the fact that he never gave up.hope on the Cleveland Browns.
ALL the time I gave him a constant dig about the Browns , he gave it back to me just as hard. Especially since I was a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I think that this world will be a little more somber place now that Bobby is gone.
I pray not only for Bobby, but his family and furry friends as they were referred to earlier.
He gave the railroad.a dedicated employee for over 30 + years.
We will all be at a loss with out him in our lives.
