I met Captain Bob through his wife....I was present at their wedding..... I had the opportunity to enjoy fun times w them on the boat, at the beach, and on holidays w family. When Bob realized that I could not hear my visitors knocking at my front door when I was working in my backyard garden, he installed a door bell for me! He had extra garden lights and gifted them to me, so my front garden would be lit up at night....and so the light remains...as his light will always remain in our hearts...So helpful and practical... when he dropped by w his truck, Bob was happy to drive me to Michael's Arts and Crafts...so I could transport 30 canvases home, that happened to be 70% off! Nice!!! So happy that to be commissioned to create a couple of paintings for Bob, from photos I had taken during happy times. We all enjoyed a really wonderful Christmas dinner at a great place for pies...Yep..Bob ate his banana cream pie first and thoroughly enjoyed it...afterwards we had a party in the parking lot! What a warm, personable, highly competent, thoughtful guy...His life was a blessing to all who knew him....my heart hurts so much for his loved ones, his family. I will always cherish memories of this big, handsome, kind man and extend my deepest condolences to family and friends...He leaves a really big hole in so many hearts....Sail Away...Captain Bob!

When I first met Bob it was on his boat the Black Pearl, and we had a few memorable outings over the past year on that vessel. He was always such a gracious host, and I loved seeing him and Justine together, including on their wedding day in Jack London Square. The last time I saw Bob he was delivering some wardrobe boxes to my house before my recent move out of state. The day before that he had taken a load of donations off my hands. Both times beaming like it was the best day of his life, and he was sincere when he wished me good luck and hope to see each other soon. I will never forget that smile.

When I was 15, maybe 16, I was fortunate enough to have spent the winter up with him, my aunt, and Jr in their condo. Bob put me to work for his business within the week...which meant we left home before 6. One of the days, and my most memorable of my stay, was the day we played hookie from his wife at the time. We had "a meeting" over breakfast and then left for the jobsite. At the site, Bob handed out paychecks to his employees and we promptly left for "another meeting". We ended up at a lake with his buddy that we had breakfast with earlier that day. Bob taught me to cast a line and then he and I spent at least 2-hours seeing who could cast farthest, the whole time his phone was going off with "where are you" blah blah blah and he would just laugh in his innocent mischievous chuckle that he had and say don't ever get married Brian. We caught a few fish, took em home, and he made some of the most delicious fish I've ever eaten! His wife at the time was pretty pissed that Bob decided he was going to eat the fish we caught and not the meal she made... again he just chuckled it off. And for me, that's who I'll always remember. The man who was kind, generous, and thoughtful to those who appreciated him. The man who did what was true to his spirit, and if you couldn't handle it, well, that's your problem within yourself to deal with.
