So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Bob was one of the calmest and nicest guy I had the pleasure to know. I grew up living next door to Bob and Lois. I remember before Willey Street was paved playing two on two or if we were lucky three on three football in the street nights after Bob ate supper until dark..
