Bob loved cars as much as I do. I will miss our conversations about the merits and aspects of all cars - both old and new.

I met Bob 50 years ago at a party and he would not let two friends and myself drive back to Atlanta and insisted that we stay at his apartment. Probably saved our lives. We have been close friends ever sense. Bob is the one who introduced me to Highlands, NC which became a second home and business for ten years. We will all miss Bob.

My Mother and Dad were some of the first occupants of Normandy Arms apartments. My brother and I were in high school at Hanna across the street. Bob made the mistake of placing our family directly above his apartment or maybe he thought the he could handle the noise that two teenage boys make better than anybody else. Bob was very patient with my brother and I. He became and very dear friend of the family and loved my Mom and Dad. Rest in peace my friend.
