    My condolences to the Klessig family and friends on the passing of Hamber Bob. May he rest in peace. He did what we all would do...fight it hard. Yes...another who will be missed.

    I extend also thanks to Hamber @Brian Klessig for sharing his fathers journey through the tough times with us.

    Thank you for sharing this unfortunate news @Jeff J

    Regards,
    Stogy

    It hurt to see it posted on FB moments ago. I didn't know him all that well but he kept tabs on me and we'd message every so often. I'll miss that. I really feel for those whom he was close with.

    After seeing him at more than a few shows in the Midwest. He was the first to say hi. And always remembered who I was from that point on. A very humble man. He put 200,000 miles on his Chevy in 10 years. Now get out and put some miles on your car in honor of him.

    Damn, sorry to hear this. BobK was a tough guy and loved his family, also the HAMB. He will be missed. I think we have all travelled thousands of miles with him through his adventures in his old Chevy. My condolences to his family.

    So sad to hear about Bob's passing. We kept in touch from the very early days of H.A.M.B and on, and later by Facebook. My condolences to his family.
