    I’m sad to just learn of Bob’s passing. I worked with Bob for many years when he lived in Phoenix, specifically at Chris-Town Shopping Center. He was most likely the hardest worker, strongest and one with the most energy and never lazy. He was able to outwork most young men and I was always impressed with his ability. I remembered also how intelligent he was and I often saw him work on difficult crossword puzzles that I couldn’t attempt to complete. I asked Bob a number of times while he was in his late 40’s and early 50’s to enroll in college classes to further his ambitions. He said he was once tested and I remember him telling me that the examiner was impressed with his IQ. I had no doubt about the results. Bob was fearless and would stand up to anyone making idle or serious threats and would never be intimidated. I admired that in him and I learned a few very good lessons. Bob was also very funny and quick witted, his comebacks had me laughing long after the comedic situation passed. I have so many stories of him to tell and I have repeated them to many and I laughed as hard. There was another side to Bob that I believe hurt him that dwelt deep inside. I wished it could have been different for him although I’m sure most of us have an issue or two. I didn’t want anymore time to pass to let viewers know of Bob’s redeeming qualities, he was one of a kind, a New Yorker at heart. I sincerely wish Bob a peaceful eternity. I only wished I had the opportunity to tell him in person. Just know that whatever his accomplishments or shortcomings he was a man to be valued and not judged. I hope another day doesn’t pass to not let someone know how we feel about them. People are precious and worth our prayers, kindness and concern.
