Almost a year too late, I offer my sincere condolences. I knew Bob and Sally in the 70's and 80's in Minneapolis. Bob was a client at a recording studio where I was engineer. We soon became great friends. I know when Sally passed it was really tough on Bob. It was shortly after that that we lost contact. A decade or more later, I had been widowed, was retired, and was volunteering at the VA Med Center in Minneapolis. It was there that I reconnected with Bob. It was great to find a dear friend again. One fond memory was taking Bob and his Dad (Reed?) for a ride in my houseboat on the Mississippi. I remember Bob telling me about when his dad cut his own hair, probably without a mirror.
I lost track of Bob when he moved to CA from Minneapolis but every once in a while I'd look for him on-line. Sadly, I found him today.
God-Speed Bob.
