Bob was as decent guy as you can find and will be missed. For those who remember his rod shop I still marvel how he found things in it. Organized chaos minus organized about describes it. Did more than one deep dive with him searching for a reel being serviced. George once told him he looked like a dog burying a bone when he was on the hunt for a reel!
