So sorry for the loss of your loved one Robert (Bob). I always enjoyed being around him.He had a good work ethic as well as a great sense of humor! I believe one his daughters played basketball during the same time period that my daughter did (mid eighties). I feel bad that I did not get to express my condolences in person.I wish your family all the best! Sincerely,David R.Harrington.
