    I think fondly of Bob every time I glance at the crucifix he made for me for my confirmation. He and Dee were wonderful sponsors, and I will be forever grateful for their guidance. He will be missed.

    Had the pleasure of meeting Bob and Dee at a St Mary’s benefit auction. What struck me about Bob was how he was a true gentleman.
