For the last three months I've been writing notes to myself to contact Bob. It seems remarkable that he has just passed. More than coincidental. He will be missed. Can anyone take his place?

Sincere condolences to the Gore Family. Mr. Gore's breakthrough on a fabric invention that was both porous and waterproof helped in the development of outdoor gear and the medical field for burn patients bandages. May the love and the special memory you shared with your father show how your life was touched by him. May Almighty God in the Heavens comfort your hearts with peace and loving kindness as you cope with this precious loss in your lives. Thank you for Mr. Robert W. Gore's contribution to the fabric industry.

I would like to offer my condolences to the Gore family and all of my former WL Gore Associates in the passing of Bob Gore. As a former Gore Associate I had the opportunity on just a few occasions to meet Bob and talk with him. He was a brilliant engineer. He has left his legacy in applied science and engineering and he has left the corporation with a very strong foundation for future generations. RIP Bob.
