Bob , was one of the first people I had the pleasure of calling my friend when I came to work at Hubbell Industrial Controls back in 1997. He was always with a smile and a joke ready to be shared. Bob was one of the most intelligent men I have ever encountered, he didn't need a catalog, drawing or computer when it came to his job. That knowledge he shared with me was all in his head and quickly accessed. I will miss our time sharing our smoke breaks and our shared laughter. May you rest in peace my dear friend, I know your are playing a round on a beautiful green in heaven.

Forever grateful for our friendship,
Patrick "Rick" Barlas
