Bob and I go quite a ways back and even though we went our separate ways, whenever we had a chance to go over our past, it was just like it was yesterday.

I never worked directly for Bob, but being in Safety we would have monthly meetings about his departments. He would keep us informed of new and old issues happening in his departments. I liked Bob because he was always fair with his employees, and also strict with them when needed. I send you my condolences and know he will be missed by you and your family and by me. Sincerely " Safety Dave " David Daugherty
