I am terribly sorry to learn of Bob's passing. He was a great friend when I started working at GE in 2006. We only worked together 6 months, however he taught me many many things and was a leader in the shop. I looked up to Bob very much. I will never forget Tea Time on the shop floor and him sitting outside in his robe at the end of his shift after a shower for a "drip dry". My condolences to his family. -Joe Caloggero, GE machinist.
