My wife and I met Bob, for the first time, at a dinner party a few years back. That meeting left us knowing he was a very caring and kind man. We really regret not having a chance to be with him again. He will be missed. Rest in peace, Bob.

I worked with Bob at American General Life in the late 90's until 2002. He was a very good mentor, tough and fair. I remember that I would try to anticipate what questions he would ask and be sure to have an answer for them. He would undoubtedly ask me something that I didn't have an answer for. I particularly recall his statement "Just because it was done that way last year, it doesn't mean it was right". In the tax and financial world, that statement was worth remembering! Sincere condolences to his daughters and family. Rest in Peace Bob.
