Bob was known as our Admiral on various internet guitar forums over the years. There was seemingly no subject, guitar or otherwise, in which he wasn't well-versed enough to offer a helpful hand. He was generous. When I bought a teal guitar from him, he very shortly thereafter mailed me a rather expensive strap he'd dyed to match it. When I offered to pay him for it, he declined, saying "What use would I ever have for a *teal* guitar strap!?" May his family always draw comfort from the memories of his love. He holds a special place in many, many people's hearts.
