I always will think about and remember Bob. What a great friend. Back in the 70's and 80's Bob would stop at Saguaro Lake to visit and tell great stories of his days and Family. Me and my Dad are so inspired by Bob. I will always remember when Bob had helped me through some times. I do miss you Bob, God Bless.
