Bob was one of a kind and I was very fortunate to have him in my life. When I lived in Massachusetts we saw each other every day. If you needed something done Bob new a guy. We learned from each other and always helped each other. In life you have many acquaintances, but very few true friends, Bob was my friend and I will miss him. Rest well my friend.

Bob was a guy that if you had a question about anything he had the answer. He had a wonderful personality and would be more than happy to help you. A true friends friend. He will be missed by many but not forgotten. He is now reunited with his loving wife. May he be blessed and resting well. Thanks for all your advice over the years
