Barbara, I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I will always remember his wonderful sense of humor. I always knew when I was with Bob at Manchesters that eventually I would be laughing out loud. He is sorely missed.

Barbara Dean,
My sincere sympathy goes out to you and your family. I was fortunate enough to know Bob as my boss, mentor, and friend flying together in both the Lear 25 and Lear 60 over a period of 2 1/2 years. We even shared a cell together in Alcatrax while on a tour in SFO! Bob laughed about that! His quick wit and special sense of humor will be missed forever. As Bob would sometimes say on short final " the low Budlights on ". I will forever cherish the great memories we had together.
