Bob was the nicest person I had a pleasure to work with!! Taught me very well in the 20+ years in the construction field. Many great memories of sports discussions on our way to jobsites across New England. One trip was to Berlin, N.H. in his stationwagon. We went to leave the job that night and his tires were frozen to the snow & ice in the parkinglot. Windchill was 50+ below zero..we had help to get out. RIP

We will always remember the good times we had with Bob & Carol, the many couples' golf trips to the Cape and Myrtle Beach, the socials at Intervale CC, the scotch foursomes, the winter couples' bowling league. They were such a part of the club's social fabric. Ernie's time with Bob playing in the Profile Seniors along with Don W. and others also provide for many special memories. Our sincerest condolences to the entire family.

We will sincerely miss Bob, we were truly lucky to have him and Carol as neighbors. We offer our condolences to his family and offer the thought that Bob is now back with Carol and they can once again while away their time golfing and fishing. He was such a nice man and treated us like family. If only the world was filled with kind, funny, gentleman like him. We will miss you Bob.
