I mourn the loss of my compadre and musical contemporary, Bob. I spent many hours of my youth and adulthood playing Bluegrass with him. My personal condolences Nancy and the rest of the family. He excelled at pretty much anything he put his head and hans to. I will always miss him.

Nancy, so sorry for your lost, it seems I only met Bob a couple of years ago, yet got to know him an enjoy his company and friendship, we both had a passion for old cars and like to drive them, work on them, keep them clean, but most of all share with others. Bob will be missed here on earth, yet God has called him home because he needs another soul for his precious kingdom, May God’s love comfort each and every family member. RIP Bob
