    I will always remember Bob as one of my greatest mentors. He was always available to consult with me and train me while he was at Martin Marietta in New Orleans. Godspeed Bob, you will be missed.

    My sincere condolences to Bob’s family and relatives. I met Bob when I started working with Martin Marietta in New Orleans in the early eighties. From those five plus years that I worked close to Bob I remember that he was a good friend and colleague, serene professional and dedicated worker and loyal. When I moved to Huntsville, I run into him in few meetings and shared his same easy going personality, ready to cooperate and to support solutions doing things. God be with us at all times.

    So sorry to hear of Bob’s sudden and tragic passing. I only knew Bob a few years through work, but I came to know him as a responsible, dependable co-worker and friend. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as you go through a very difficult time. May God Bless you all.

    We have lost a true friend. I had the pleasure of working (and playing) with Bob for several years while living in New Orleans. Bob was always fun to be around. His stories of walking the Appalachian Trail, working with Outward Bound and similar exploits could keep us smiling and laughing for hours. His smile was infectious.

    He was a professional at work and a comedian at play.

    He will be missed.
