I never met a more gentle gentleman than Bob. I will miss our lunches at Mr. B's and his giggles. My sincere sympathy to Bob's family.

I have known Robert for 75+ years as a classmate, former neighbor, and one great guy. He was always serious about his studies and always had a friendly demeanor. He was a winner.
