    My heart goes out to Bob’s family. Bob and I worked at Counterdrug in support of postal interdiction and in the HQ for several years. He was a joy to work with…cheerful and determined to make our workday fun.

      Hey Bob, reminiscing about our high school trip to the coast. Listened to Dog named Boo about 10 times today. Had to stay in YMCA because we we were too young to rent a motel room. Where did time go.

        Thank you for those memories Tom. I remember when we came to your place in Weiser for the 30th reunion. He talked about the trip you mentioned many times.

    Bob was a kind, easy going person who knew a lot more than he let on. I met him 7 years ago when I first moved to Idaho. He lived two doors down from me and his and Robin’s house was built by the same builder as mine. Many things in our homes were almost identical. He always gave me a hard time, saying my house was better because mine was a “model home”. I am so sad Parkinson’s disease took him so young and… so fast! I will will miss his friendship greatly. It was a honor, and privilege to have known you Bob. Thank you for your service. Rest in peace my friend! 😥💙⚘🇺🇲
