I worked with Bob in Purchasing at State Farm many years ago. He was such a nice pleasant person to work with. My deepest sympathy to the family.

I'm sad to learn of Bob's passing and offer my deepest condolences to his loved ones! I was fortunate to work with Bob in the early 80's at State Farm. He was always kind, generous with his knowledge, shared his humor and was a great teammate! Bob was highly respected for his professionalism and his knowledge. It was my pleasure to know him and to have met Dorothy! May you treasure your memories and know Bob lived a good, productive life!
