Bob was "THE GUY" in XP - the longest active member in Nv Division. He kept the group on track through the bylaws. A huge influence to the scholarsip process fom the inception of the idea when we passed a hat around the room and collected the change we had in our pockets all the way to the chance to dispense two scholarships in one year. He believed in fair opportuntiy, transparency and the chance to bolster the prospects of recipients of those scholarships. Not always the most liked guy in the room, but those that knew Bob had tremendous respect for him. His experience from his Elks involvement helped a great deal with the XP scholarships.
Bob's dedication and commitment both at war and at peace gave the rest of us the life and liberty's we know today. He was a member of THE GREATEST GENERATION always working toward a greater good for our society.
I am a better person having known Bob. I feel blessed to consider him my friend. I will miss Bob and Darlene, but know they are well mounted and riding across beautiful landscapes enjoying each other for eternity. Rest in Peace my friends.
