Bob made a lasting impression on me, and I had the privilege of working with him for a few years at IBM. His honesty and direct approach made all the difference with his friends, colleagues and customers. I will always remember him as one of the greatest persons that I have met in my life.
Bob was a fantastic guy and was super to play golf with. I sure will miss him.
Bob was one of the best men I've ever known and he had all the qualities of a truly great person and best friend. Jeanne and I are so honored to have had Bob in our lives for so many years. Bob and Donna are examples of how we all strive to live this life. His great attitude and wonderful smile will be sorely missed! Rest in peace my good friend!
There was no one like Bob Armstrong. He had character most of us only dream of and set an example how we should all live. I will never forget the times we spent together and will miss the phone calls and visits to Indiana. He had a way of making everyone feel special with that smile and personal touch. We were all blessed to be in his presence and Indiana and the USA truly lost one its best citizens. Bob will always have a 21 gun salute in my heart and anyone who knew him would say the same! We will miss you Bob.
As the husband of a lovely sorority sister I enjoyed being with our Indy sorority gatherings. You were always fun and I loved being together with you all. God's Blessings to you Donna and your family. Comfort and Peace will come now knowing Bob is in His Heavenly Home. Sisterly Love. Lou Linnemeier
Bob was the consummate professional, mentor and good friend. I recall when I first met Bob in January '77 at the Indiana State government cafeteria and the last time I met him a year ago at my IBM retirement party. Bob has been a good friend and the world will miss him.

A gentleman and a gentle man. Bob's ready smile will be missed by his many friends. Sincere sympathy to his family.
Bob always was happy. We are so sorry that he had to suffer these past months. You were a great guy, Bob. Bev & Bob Heid
Bob, known to many of us as "Sgt. York" was a truly great guy. He would also come under the monniker "Jack Armstrong,the all-American guy". However Bob was known,he was ALWAYS held in high esteem. I've known Bob from the time we were both Marines and that goes back to 1959. I don't know how but once we actually left active duty and were seperated by the miles we actually became closer friends. The last few years we kept in touch thanks to E-mails and at times by phone. This was truly a family man. He will be missed by all who knew him. I consider it a privilege to have known and worked with Bob. One gentleman and as fine a man as one could ask for. Semper 'Fi.
We were just kids, right out of High School, still in our teens when we all joined the Marine Corp. We came together to become friends for life in the fall of 1959. For the next 3 years we lived, ate, slept, worked and played together. We came home on long 3 and 4 day weekends. We became unintentionally, inseparable. We knew just about everything about each other. It was Lee A Potter (Peter Potter), Bob Graff (Garf), Frank Rodriguez (Rod) and Bob Armstrong (Big Jack All American), just like brothers. Always together. I know I will never meet another man as good and kind as Bob. It was an honor to have known and served with Bob and especially to have become his lifetime friend. I will never forget Bob.He will always be in my thoughts and prayers. As Bob always said to me.
Bob was truly one of the good guys and thanks to him we retired guys from IBM had a close friend that brought us back to Indy every year for golf and more importantly friendship
One of the best...A True Gentleman...we all lost a great person and friend.
Always a kind word for everyone and a smile that makes the stranger feel welcome. Bob will be missed but who and what he was will live on. Truly, one of the finest men I've known.
I just don't know where to start! I guess after working with and learning from Bob for several years, knowing and cherishing the friendship of an incredibly honest, ethical, sincere, forever supporting helping others, solid great friend, who never said a negative thing about anyone, and for whom about him no one ever had an unkind thing to say, for almost 50 years, Bob's passing is a bitter pill. He will be sadly missed, but never forgotten. Rest in Peace proud Marine.
super nice, always a nice warm smile every time you would see or be with him.
What a great friend and golfing buddy! I will miss Bob's great sense of humor and his perfect gentleman's demeanor. He and I were born one day apart and always enjoyed the month of April.
I was so sad when I heard the news of Bob's passing. Such a good man. I had the honor of spending 3 years in VMA-533 with Bob. Bob and I worked in the Avionics shop and our group was very tight. All of us Marines were about the same age and enjoyed our time with each other. We all looked up to him and will miss him
Bob always had a friendly smile and was a true gentleman. Enjoyed working with him at IBM.
What a Great Man and Friend,Bob will be missed by all Family and Friends.
