My favorite memory is always going to the races and his high white socks and his pasty white legs would always just stick out. We would always joke with him and tell him he needs a tan.

My favorite memory of Bob was from when I was a child at Mt. Hope. The church held annual rummage sales which included deli offerings. I remember fondly watching Bob put on a show slicing lunch meat with the "scary cutting machine." Bob was a fixture at Mt. Hope and will be missed.
