Bob hired me at WXYZ many many years ago. I've always been grateful to him for starting me in a career I've loved. He was a true class act. I was sorry to hear he passed away.

I have fond memories of Bob going back over 30 years. He was so personable and had a wonderful sense of humor. Always a gentleman and fun to be around. And a great salesperson, too! I was very sorry to read of his death.
