My sincerest condolences to Barb and Bob's family. Bob was a very memorable person with a great sense of humor. He was my friend from 5th grade (when we moved to the farm across the road from him) continuing through high school and beyond. We had many memorable experiences together. He was a dedicated family man who set a great example for his family. He will be sorely missed.

Bob, George Rings and Larry Martin were so kind to me when we moved to Montpelier in 1993. I was so happy to be a part of their poker club for all those years and will always look on the memories of many a Thursday night laughing and being the source of their jokes. My best to Barb and her sons. Bob was a very kind man.
