  • Bob and I played a lot of golf together both at Highland in Attleboro and in Florida after he retired.  We shared good friends and a lot of laughs.  He will be missed.
    My condolences to his family.
     

  • Monica, I am so very, very sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of you and Bob loving and laughing and caring for one another with kindness and gentleness.  May light perpetual shine upon him and God’s peace be with you. 

  • Hello, I am Harrison Jones and have worked for Acura, as Bob’s factory representative over the past 6+ years. During my monthly visits we would also take time to converse about our families and life in general. I retired in February and knew he was close. He loved the service to people as a top sales representative in my market. I really appreciate his friendship and send him my prayers. God Bless your family and soul. 

  • My condolences to Bob’s family at this difficult time. I knew Bob from high school.
