Bob was the greatest political debater ever residing on Cherrytree Lane. I will miss him for his sincere love of listening to others and their ideas. He was my friend.

Our deepest condolences to the Linder Family. Glennon worked with Bob at the River King Mine in Freeburg from 1973 until it closed. He was a hard worker and fun to be around. We will miss seeing him at St Joseph fish fries.
