- I was very surprised and saddened to learn of Bobby's passing. I had just became acquainted with him this year and he was interesting to talk to. He enjoyed life and especially his motorbike. He was witty with a good sense of humor and enjoyed the friendship of others. You will be missed Bob by your many friends,esp. at the Senior Center. RIP,my friend!
- Bob worked here at WTJR for many years. He worked in master control. He also was involved in the renovation of the studio building at 222 North sixth street. We build a stage lighting grid together it was a lot of fun and good work.Bob enjoyed his firearms and we had a following out in our friendship over that issue. I did have a good talk with him about 2 months ago and we seemed to make amends. I am glad of that. I will miss you Bob. I have hope you made it to heaven as you always put value on the the spiritual walk.
