I had the honor of singing with Bob in the St. Andrews choir. His love of singing, happy spirit, and beautiful tenor voice were so inspiring and uplifting. I’m sure he is leading a choir of angels in Heaven. All of my love goes out to Marian and the family.

Bob was a good friend, mentor and fellow geologist. I have many fond memories of Bob from working together at The Exploration Co. and in the early days at the Balcones Log Library. My fondest memory is Bob's great sense of humor. I was working as a contract geologist at TXCO. I would beg Bob for his "joke of the day". He had some really great funny stories and witticisms.

Bob, enjoy your new life in heaven where you are made whole again.

It was a pleasure knowing Bob, both professionally and personally. We sat together at many South Texas Geological Society meetings, where Bob's knowledge and insights enhanced the talks. He was a fine individual who will be missed.

I am totally saddened by Bob's passing. I worked with him when he moved to San Antonio in the mid 70s. We worked at Fountain, Houston and Associates. He was a great geologist and a great man.

I am saddened to learn of Bob's passing. I worked with him for many years and became his friend. He shared many stories of his life's adventures. He loved his Family, his Packard, and Earth Science. I am blessed to have known him. God Bless the Scott Family.
