We are so sorry to hear of Bob´s passing. His family has our deepest sympathy. We will always have fond memories of him and Mary Ann. We loved going to races and watching Bob race. Bob´s station was a stopping point for us " kids" to stop and talk when we were growing up. Bob was a friendly outgoing person and will be missed by all who knew him. RIP Bob.
