Bob was a very special guy. Never a dull moment spending time with him. He will be missed by me, and my family, and I am sure anyone else that ever had the privilege of knowing him. They don't make people like him anymore. The only one left I can think of, that could stand beside him as cool, would be Clint Eastwood.
