Our friendships on earth are some of the greatest treasures that we’ll experience in this life. From high school wrestling through our work days together Bob was always the dependable 100% guy everyone could count on. He was quick & smart & shared his great sense of humor generously. Bob called me several times through the years just to “check up” on me & wish me well. I reflect on his life with warm respect...he was a good man. HB
