Condolences to His wife and "God speed BOSS" We will remember you from your great work!
Rest In Peace big guy.... You will be missed!
I have known Bob for many years, thanks to the Gas/FX group. When I bought Jim Zakias old 55 Chevy, Bob and I became real close friends as he always told me it was his all time favorite gasser. I am at a loss for words. He was a great friend and I will miss him very much. Rest in peace Bob!
God Speed Bob... prayers for the family.

Thanks for everyone's prayers and kind words about Plum. I have been conveying the messages to him. I guess he's pouring the bleach down for Jungle Jim to do his burnouts as we speak.<o></o>
Staged, The Light Is Green - The shutter Closed --- RIP
Said it before, God speed Plum
Since I'm not old enough to have seen any of famous drag racing cars from the 60's and 70's in person. Bob's photos are truly an treasure trove, and they allow everyone, including myself, to both remember and enjoy the history of the great sport of drag racing. My thoughts and Prayers go out to Plum, his wife, and his loved ones.
Bob was a great person he will be missed he is with is buddy JJ RIP Buddy
The address for making a memorial donation in Bob's name is:

Bob was a great person, always had time to talk with people and never hesitated to share. Goes without saying that he will be greatly missed.
R.I.P. Mr Plum, and vaya con Dios.
Condolence's to the family.

St Joseph's Catholic Church

Dallastown PA 17313
We all knew this was coming. I am relieved Bob is in no pain now. I pray God will ease Dottie and the family's heartache. He was a special guy to me. Thanks for all you contributed to the sports we all love. Because of the Plumers it will live forever.
Rest in Peace Bob. I never knew you, but I thank you.
Prayers to Dottie and all Bob's family and friends.....
I just talked to Dottie, and she said a "dress code" will be strictly enforced at the memorial service. No suits, no ties, no formal attire. Wear your favorite racing attire.
I know that Bob was partial to the Gassers, especially SWC, Big John, and the Bizio truck. Make Plum happy and make him feel comfortable if you are planning on attending.
You left a legacy that many racing fans will enjoy for years. I will always remember you each and every time i browse through the 'Drag Cars in Motion' thread.
Thanks for the memories.
I dedicated my blog today to paying respect to Bob Plumer... His dedication to documenting drag racing's golden years was beyond reproach...

Plenty of parking out back, and H&H Lighting which is next door will allow parking in their lot as well. Enter the Post through the front door and come to the 2nd floor.
Hope to see you all there, even if its just in spirit,
Rest in peace, Bob.
It was a fitting "send-off" for Plum yesterday, ending with a little cackling from the Boss Hydro. Even shooting some flames although I couldn't capture them.
