      So sad to hear of Bob’s passing. I first met Bob in 1965 when I was with W W Grainger. He was real gentleman & a true friend! ALso knew Carol, Chris, Dan & Charlie over the years. Bob would stop in periodically over the years( just to say Hi. I retired in 2011 & Chris is the only one I’ve seen since. You all have my deepest condolences!

    Kitty and family,
    I was just another kid in the old neighborhood who played with Tippy and Debbie, but I was old enough to recognize Bob’s humanity. He worshipped you Kitty, and was always kind and gentle with not only his own kids but all of us in the neighborhood too as we played with the old Jeep, picked the cherries, played “North to Alaska” on the old juke box and “rode” on the old propane tank. I remember his sense of humor and I always admired him as a dad and a good neighborhood. We need more men like Bob in this world.
