Bob was a good friend of mine, and I was heartbroken to hear the news. the first time i met Bob i was about 2 months into my new position at an equipment company. it took me all of about 5 minutes to realize i was talking to a great person. As many we'll say "Hurdles" that Civana project had, he still shot up with excitement and started showing me the project, and explaining things to me in detail, things that have helped accelerate my career. Bob was always easy to talk to and i always looked forward to catching up with him after work over a few pints. we had tried to make plans to get the boats out a few times and i truly regret that not coming together. we only knew each other for about 1 year and half, but the way we talked it was like we were friends for decades. Bob made an impact on my life and i will never forget him.
