Bob, you were instrumental to my success in radio broadcasting. I thank you for the many hours of mentoring you provided to me and to so many other young Fairmonters back in the 1970s. My deepest condolences to your family - we have all lost a wonderful man. Shannon LeHere Fioravanti, Wilmington, Delaware

As a teenager, I looked forward every Wed. to attending the pool parties he DJ'd in Fairmont. He was so friendly and related to the kids so well. I have thought and talked about him to people when we REMEMBER WHEN? With deepest sympathy to the family!

I first knew Bob when he was a DJ on WMMN in my hometown of Fairmont, WV. I later worked with him at WFGM-FM in the mid-80s. Please extend my thoughts and prayers to his family.

Condolences to your family. One of the best and most influential talents I had the privilege to know and listen to when he was on WMNN Fairmont. As he used to say at the end of his show each night; "Good Night young lovers, wherever you are."

Haven't seen you for 40 years, but in my memory archives you are always there. When I reflect on my youth, you always in that warm and loving picture somewhere. I wanted your family to know that you mattered to many of us when it mattered most. My sympathies to your loved ones.
