I am sorry for the loss of your family member. I worked with Bob at EDS and always enjoyed bumping into him in the halls for conversation. I was honored to be a guest at this retirement party and missed him when he took his retirement. Bob was always helpful and quick with a smile. I moved to CA and Bob was kind enough to send me Rochester updates via email. He attended church where my dad did and would check in with me if he didn't see my dad from time to time. Peace be to your family.
