Bob and I knew each other for 36 years. We both started working for the Colorado Lottery in 1982. He was one of the first employees hired to get the Lottery going. Over the years, he was always ready to come to my house and solve my latest electrical problem. I was constantly amazed at his vast knowledge of electronics and security systems. I really enjoyed our frequent lunches. He was a true friend and will be missed.
