    I first met Bob in Waylan, MO in 2011. I enjoyed talking with him and following his road trips on the HAMB. It was admirable to see someone drive his old car that much. Here is a very familiar picture of Bob cruising with his buddies at the NSRA Nationals in Louisville, KY 2014. I always loved his license plate.

    You will be missed.

    Dammit. Even though we knew this was coming it’s still hits hard. He was one of a kind. RIP Bob. Tell my dad I said hi.

    My deepest heartfelt condolences to Maggie, his family, and his legions of friends. An event wasn't complete unless Bob was there. Would some please post the iconic photo of him fishing on the salt. It's my favorite but I don't have iy. RIP my friend.

    Never had the pleasure of meeting Bob but I enjoyed reading what he wrote here on the HAMB.

    Our family has lost another good one.
    RIP Bob, may God give your family peace as they mourn your passing to the next part of your journey.

    I have so many fond memories of Bob, too many to mention. But i do know for a fact that having been his friend made my life special, he introduced me to many cool folks, invited us to see private collections that i would never had seen otherwise, and i have forgotten how many times we made repairs in motel parking lots. Such good times. My wife and i will miss him dearly. Rest in peace Bob. We love you.
     
  21. Rest in Peace Bob. :(
