To the Havercamp family, my prayers and condolences go out to all of you. So sorry for your loss.
I knew Bob from our years at Sears, Nanuet from around the mid 1970's to the mid 1980's.
He always had a smile on his face and was always in a good mood.
I left Sears in November 1988 and several years later, I remember seeing Bob play his guitar in a country band at a function that I attended.
Farewell my friend and Rest in Peace.
