    I met Bob back in 1966 or 1967. I played in the band "The Country Squires", Bob was also playing music. We became friends back then and remained friends until the present. Bob was a good musician, a good friend and most importantly a good person. Bob will be missed by those who knew him.

    We have know Bob over 50 years. Worked in a band "Alive and Pickin" for quite a few of them. Great guy to be around and if He had any enemies it would have been their fault. Never heard him speak ill of anyone.
