I met Bob in 1972 when I went to work at the EJ&E. He was always a kind gentle (often mischievous) man always willing to help anyone. He often talked about his children and I admired how involved he was in their lives and activities. I knew Bob was a military man but never knew his rank. Bob retired before I left the "J" but I've never forgotten him.
I am truly sorry to hear of his passing and pray the good life he lived and the memories he left behind will sustain you during this time.
