Bob, John Fothergill called me last week and announced me the bad news. I was really surprised and I could hardly believe him. Bob like John you were more than my Boss you were a very good and a very good listener. Often I called you at home for personal reasons and your advice were always excellent.

Thank you Bob and Rest in Peace.

Bob was my friend for 17 years and boss for 8 of those years. I learned a lot from Bob about the industry and how to treat people. He was a class act all the way. We stayed in touch until his passing, I am really going to miss our phone conversations.

Bob was my boss for 20+ years, but above all, was a great friend. I always looked forward to his visits to the west coast.
