I had worked with Bob for years at Tom O’Brien CDJR. I can always recall his keen sense of humor.
A great sales manager. He was “ getting her done “ before Larry the Cable guy was born.
A classic scholar and gentleman. He will be missed.
Condolences and prayers lifting up his family as they grieve his loss.
