    Having known Bob for many many years and being his neighbor down the road, This is a big loss to the community. He was always willing to help and was a great person. I always enjoyed visiting with him at TSC and even if I didn’t need help with anything, he was always willing to chat to catch up on what was going on in our neighborhood on 41. He will be missed…
