I am so sad to hear that Bob died. I just found out today. I wish I could have been at his funeral. Bob was a great guy and a friend to everyone. We both crossed over from FDIC in Dallas to bank supervision in OKC back in 1998 and we went through the examiner training (pledgeship) process together. It was a chance for both of us to get back to OKC around family and old friends. Bob was such a nice guy and so giving. He let me camp out at his lake home at Texoma for my last final week of studying for the big examiner test. I will always be grateful to Bob for that, but also for his great friendship over the years. Bob was so proud of his family and loved to talk about them. I'm so sad that he is gone.
