Bob was a great man I'm truly sorry to hear of his passing. I loved to hear of all the stories he would tell me about the actors and actress he had flown. I'm glad I was able to help Bob with mazzete 1 and mazette 2. He loved going to javiers and eating there Mexican food. Fly high Bob your wife and loved ones will be waiting.

I flew on the Argosy with Bob many, many years ago in Dayton. I have nothing but good memories of flying with him. My deepest sympathies to all.
