Tiny, I remember when you showed up at a PSGA show years ago, Bob was so happy to see you and announced to the crowd that you were in attendance.

He was a big admirer of your playing and of all the people you played with over the years!

He was a big fan and you made his day!!
Regards, Craig

Thank you for those words Craig. What you said just made my day. I believe that was in 2001.

Bob was an awesome person and will be missed..!!

I'm sending you a PM as well.

I just came across this post and I am very sad to hear this about Bob. He was a dear friend to me since 1987 and I received the 2003 Appreciation award from the PSGA
for the many articles I had published in the newsletter for 20 years. He will be missed by 1000's the world over.
Rest in Peace my dear friend.
