I knew Bob nearly 20 years. Always a gentleman, in remarkable shape & well dressed. A stickler for detail, his Building Committee efforts helped boost Roaming Shores by nearly 500 well-built homes over the years.

I never knew his middle name. Where he was Robert Eugene, my own father was Eugene Robert (Phillips). With a mother Betty Jay, aunt Barbara & cousin David, how odd to see like names in his family's details. My Dad severed in the Navy in WWII as well, in the SEABEES.

Rest well Robert, a life well lived!
