Bob was a special friend and mentor to me in our association with the American Legion and the Boy Scouts. I could always count on solid advice given with grace and wisdom. His sense of humor ranged far and we could find laughter in some strange circumstances. Although I did not have a recent close relationship, I will miss not being able to reach out. Semper fidelis.
