So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I knew him from Bible Study Fellowship and sometimes I would see him where I worked. He was one of the finest people and Christian I have known. Just a kind and gentle giant. Prayers for everyone.

Bob and I started working at Eastman at almost exactly the same time in July 1965. Same office together. So sorry and blessings to you all.
