Far beyond the innumerable accomplishments of his lifetime lies Bob's legacy: the uncommon kindness and generosity he spent his life giving to everyone around him. While we all share in the loss of...

Arkansas National Guard PR man wondering down the KARK-TV halls at 10th & Spring, a distinguished and busy executive took me around the station introducing me to everyone, even though wearing a military uniform in public wasn't a very popular thing in the early 70s.
