I had the privilege of knowing Bob over the last 15 years not only as a client, but more importantly as a friend. Bob had this aurora about him that instantly brought a smile to your face. I sincerely enjoyed my time with him and the conversations about life that we shared. He will be missed by many. Prayers to his family and friends during this difficult time.
