    Sad day. Why is it that the good ones leave us too young. Prayers for him and his family and all the friends close to him.
    It's hard to imagine an hotrod run/show without the BobK.
    Rest easy Bob.

  7. I wake to find my social media page blown up with the very sad news that our friend Bob K has passed. I chose to come here to the HAMB to offer our condolences. To me, not only an ambassador to the car collecting world, but in a nut shell, he is what the HAMB is all about. Many of my car friends are just that; my friends, but Bob K was a friend of my whole family. He will be missed for sure, but I don't think that any of us can be sad, he was that great of a guy and we will always break out a smile and good feeling when ever we think of him.
  8. Rest in peace my friend

    Bob’s mission in life was to meet and make friends with everyperson he possibly could and to that goal, I think we can all agree, he succeeded like no other.

    He touched a lot of lives and made a lot of friends. He will be missed greatly.

    RIP buddy.

    What a great man. Bob was a friend even before I realized it, because he was a FRIEND MAGNET. I Love you Bob. You are an example for us all to live up to.

    I posted this on facebook
    I took this photo off anothers post. As soon as I saw it and the misty look I thought there's Bob driving into heaven in his trusty vert

  19. I don't get on the HAMB much these days, but this news about Bob's passing truly sucks. I only met him once in person but he was a figure of knowledge and the true spirit of hot rodding that helped build this forum. He was an real example of the type of person that makes our hobby so enriching. May his spirit be at peace and all who loved him share in his memory and of his contributions to all our lives. RIP BOB K

    Like many here, my heart is broken today.

    Farewell Mr. Klessig! You are gone, but you will never be forgotten. I look forward to meeting you on the other side.

    Godspeed brother!
