Bob was a good friend for many years. We shared many trips to gun shows all over Ohio and other states. He was a fine and caring person and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

I met Bob when he was already in his mid 80's, as he was a volunteer at my Grandmother's funeral luncheon. He quickly became my friend as we shared the same love for our country and his gunsmithing talents. His easy ways, quick smile, and great sense of humor were always given each time we met in "the shop" at his house. The only other constant was his love and appreciation for his best friend Almaruth. Bob was truly a charter member of "The Greatest Generation"
