What a beautiful person. I worked with him for many years in experimental at John Deere. Bob earned the respect of everyone he worked with. Not a man of a lot of words but, his actions spoke volumes. Super mechanical skills and smile that made you trust him. His love of aviation and motorcycles was always fun to see. With respect, I salute you a thankful fare well. You will not be forgotten.
