Mary Anne and family, having known Bob for 40+ years thru street rodding I feel a sincere loss with his passing. Bob had one major like in his life (after his family) and that was to get up at 3 AM and head out to the shop to work on his or customers cars. And his output was fantastic. He was a great representative of the National Street Rod Association serving for decades as the NSRA State Safety Inspector until his health limited his traveling. He was loved and admired by many and his loss will be felt by all who knew him. Rest in eternal Peace Bob! And say HI to Sue foe me:)
