I wanted to express my sincere condolences on Bobs passing. I was a colleague and will always recall his fine work as well as his sense of humor and spirit of fun.

He was a real asset to his community and those of us who knew him.
Thank you Bob for all that. Cheers.

Judy and family,

I was so saddened to hear of Bob's passing. I had known Bessie, Maurice and Bob for many years. I had the honor of singing at your bridal luncheon so many years ago. I work for Attorney Loring Paul Fluke and would speak with Bob quite often when he called our office.

My heartfelt condolences are extended to you and the family.

To Judith and Bob's family:

I had the absolute pleasure of knowing and working with and against Bob over the course of my legal career and am glad to call him my friend. I am heartbroken to learn of his passing and offer my heartfelt sympathy to you all. Bob was a lawyer's lawyer, always frank and honest, both in his work and in his opinions of others, many times in quite colorful language. The bar has lost one of its great members, and Bob's clients have lost a fine advocate. He is now cruising among the stars. Bon voyage.

Having worked with Bob during his all-too-brief time at the Daily Evening Item, I'll always remember him as a quiet, true gentleman with a great sense of humor. It was a pleasure, Bob. Rest in peace.
