I worked with Bob for many years at Paragon Pattern. He was a quiet and easy-going guy who was friends with everyone. We will miss seeing Bob and Arlene at Parties in the Park, and the Patternmakers retirees breakfasts. Our thoughts and prayers are with Arlene.

My condolences to your family. I was a class mate of Bob’s at Catholic Central. He was always so very nice and I would chat with him at our reunions.

Bob was my Uncle. He was the coolest. He always had cool cars and boats and did cool things. We would go salmon fishing and hunting together and I loved to play cribbage with him. I'm going to really miss him.

We were neighbors and childhood play mates. He would take me for rides on his motor scooter and we played baseball. Sad to hear of his passing. Many nice memories.

I enjoyed working with Gabby at Paragon Pattern. He was very helpful with the younger employees even though he did not talk much. I will miss not seeing him at the Retired Pattern makers breakfast at the Cherokee restaurant and at the Parties in the Park with his wife. God bless his soul!
