Ellen and I were shocked and saddened to learn of Bob's passing. Bob and Linda have been good friends of ours throughout the years and we have many wonderful memories.

Bob and I were stationed in Colorado as Chief Master Sergeants. We worked together many times on issues involving our enlisted personnel and their esprit de corps. Bob was always concerned about our troops and their well being and worked diligently to make their lives better. He was what we in the Air Force call a “Chief's Chief”, true blue to the heart and unwavering in his commitment.

Not only did we work together, but we also spent time camping and fishing. Once, on John Martin Reservoir, Bob and I were walleye fishing. We didn't know it but there was also a walleye tournament going on. Together, we caught some very nice walleye and probably could've won their tournament. Another time we were there, the lake was low. We started spotting lures hung-up in a small sunken tree forest. That was too much for Bob. He changed down to his undies and went diving for lures. I think we hauled in 20 or 30.

Bob was no stranger to practical jokes, nor was I. I called his Cary work office once to complain about pot holes in the streets that hadn't been fixed and had damaged my car. I pretended to get irate enough to want to challenge him to a fight. I had him going pretty good when he put me on speaker phone for the rest of the office to hear, not realizing I was joking. I asked him how big an ole' boy he was and if he wasn't too big, I was going to come over there and handle this situation myself. The entire office erupted in laughter.

We already know Chief Bilodeau is in heaven right now; I'm imagining him chuckling over our nicknames, BBA and TAB.

Ellen and I pray that Linda and her family can find peace during this difficult time. Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing of Bob.

Robert and Ellen
