Greg, Linda and Family -

I had just returned from Florida and found out that Bob had passed away. I shared a drink with him just a few weeks earlier at Gowanda. He will be terribly missed by family and friends.

Take care.

Sorry to read of Bob's passing. Had several nice times with them many years ago.

We were saddened to hear of Bob's passing. As former members of G.C.C. it was always a pleasure to talk with Bob. He will be missed by all of his friends. He was a genuinely nice man.

Dear Sheri and Greg... so very sorry for your loss. Marc just called me with the news of Bob's passing. Your parents were my godparents...not sure you even knew that. We had many happy memories growing up with our two families. I will miss your dad.
