I worked with Bobby at Wellsboro Electric and Tri-County REC for over 20 years. Had a lot of memorable trips with him to Baltimore, Lancaster, Columbus Ohio, and Hershey. Oh, least I forget Philadelphia where we thought we were going to get run out of the Eagles stadium because Bobby was wearing Redskin colors, and yeah, Eagles vs the Redskins!! The Eagles won and we survived, lol!!! The picnics on Pine Creek when we played “hide n seek” with Josh and Che on trails surrounding the cabin way past bedtime. Multi flower Rose is always nasty, really nasty in the dark, but man, it was fun and we played like we were kids. Several roofing projects at my house, Bobby’s house and his parents cabin were work but still fun with Bobby around. And I’ll never forget the day we kept setting off the bosses car alarm (with the extra set of keys we had) at the country club. Good thing he was forgiving! :-) You went way too soon Bobby, I’m going to miss you.
