    I had the privilege of knowing Bob most of my life. He and I were in elementary school together from Kindergarten through Sixth grade. We reconnected in High School and again through Face Book many years later.
    We also shared the same birth date & year. I remember him as a friendly, considerate, and compassionate person whom I called “friend”
    May God bless his family during this difficult time.
