Dear Ron, we just heard about Bob’s death. I know how close you were so my heart is breaking for you. I’m glad we got to visit with both of you at Cutters and caught up. It was so nice spending time with the two of you at our classes’ 70th birthday party last October.

Bob EEE as I always called him , worked together at Bell in the mid to late 80's . SO many wonderful times..probably played more pinochle and trivial pursuit than worked! A wonderful friend for those years! Too many stories but all reflecting his warmth and joy. RIP..Ron H

When I think of Bob 3 things come to mind - gentleman, extremely kind and sooooo funny. Some of my best memories from my days at the phone company were lunches with the 'guys' and the Skirt at SunDeckers. You were never with them that you didn't laugh nonstop. RIP Bob-you will be so missed by so many.
