Not sure what to say?

I'm not exactly sure when or how Bob and I met, but I remember sharing the stage with him on quite a few occasions. His abilities on the steel guitar were fantastic and I'm sad to hear we'll never be on the same stage again...at least in this life as we know it.

I'm proud to know you and I'm certain that things are better for you now.

I knew Bob in high school and was able to see him a few times at some of our class of "65" reunions. He was a good guy who enjoyed life----RIP Bob.

Had not seen Bob in years but it came as a surprise to shear of his passing. Always enjoyed his humor. A good musician and a good man. May God supply you peace and c9mfort in your time of grief.Sincerely Ron < Sharon Frazier

Bob was a great man and I had the pleasure of caring for him for over a year. We had many great times together and I enjoyed his stories he shared with me. We went to rock steady boxing together, we done wood working together, and I got to spend allot of time with him. Bob taught me many life lessons, the most important was never give up!! I will miss you Bob, I hope ur having the time of ur life in heaven

When I think of Bob I remember the night that he and his band played at Pierre's. In the middle of one song the whole band got up and started a conga line with the crowd as the rhythm continued. They led the line throughout the room. The smile on Bob's face showed that he really loved his music and making others happy. He was in his element. That is what I see when I think of Bob.
We will miss you Bob.f
