Bob was a fascinating raconteur, a wonderful conversationalist, and a well-informed amateur historian. A welcomed guest and a gracious host, it was always a pleasure to be in his company and talk away the hours. I've rarely met such a fascinating person as Bob was, and my wife and I will miss him greatly. Our condolences and blessings go out to his wife Rosalie and his entire family.
