His family will remember him as a man’s man. He was the type of person who would choose to repair something over buying a new one. He valued hard work, honesty and the value of a man’s word. Big Jeff Gordon fan, one could find Bob watching the race and always having something to say during the race if he wasn’t caught resting his eyes a minute or two. What Bob enjoyed even more was a game of pool. Member of the APA of Orlando for over twenty years his home away from home every Thursday night was pool league. Highly skilled in both 8-ball and 9-ball Bob played with some of best and against some of the best.
