Bob became one of the first and best friends I ever met when I moved to Coshocton and has been that way for 32 years. Bob and I spent several years working together on the Ohio Central Steam Train at Sugarcreek. Every day was sure to be a new adventure when working with Bob. My heart is saddened at the loss and I will certainly miss his friendship and laughter.
