I have fond memories from my childhood, and a few as an adult. I enjoyed the surprise phone call in the fall. It was wonderful to connect with you. You were truly a good man. You’ll be missed by many. I’m sorry I didn’t make the effort to know you more.

I knew Bob from the early 70’s in Madison then party’s on Potter street. As luck would have it we were both assigned to the USS AMERICA AIRCRAFT CARRIER. Bob was always kind and respectful with a funny sense of humor. You will be missed brother Bob.
