Shocking news! I knew Bob from the Indians and the Black Knights. Glad I had the opportunity to spend some time with him at the Indians reunion. Rest in peace my friend.

I met Bob when we both worked at Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line in the 70’s. He was the only one who had the nerve to climb up and into the huge water tower at the Glenarm station to inspect it for corrosion. Bob was always a top notch gentleman, respectful and kind to people and a great family man. The world should have more people like Bob. It saddens me his life was cut short but nice to know he will be waiting for us at Heaven’s door with a big smile and a handshake Hello. You did a nice job here on Earth. Well done my friend!

Ivy, I was so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I was in the Piasa Indians with your Dad, and got to visit with him at the reunion last year. Please know that there is a large group of people in Illinois who loved your Dad. We all thought Bob was bigger than life. He was a wonderful man and was so proud of his family, especially his new granddaughter. We all got to see pictures of Lyra at the reunion. Treasure your memories. Praying for you and your family. May God Bless Bob.

I am stunned at this sad, sad news. Bob was definitely one of my most memorable friends from the Piasa Indians. He was loved and admired by all who knew him. Rest In Peace, big Bob.

Oh Bobby! We didn’t march together but your dad and I were great friends. God Bless of his children Jennifer, Ivy, wife Kathy, mother Julie and all extended family. He always “stood out” to me because he was the LARGE FELLA in the Black Knight snare line. I’ll miss our cutting up and conversations. Rest my friend.
