I remember Bob spending a lot of time with my family when I was young. He loved my grandfather, Johnny (Gene) Ross. My father, Jimmy Ross and Bob and Tom would spend a lot of time together, hunting, card playing and just laughing for hours telling jokes. Bob was a dear friend of my family for many years. He will be missed.
