    Man, those 3 years went by fast. I had the pleasure of meeting Bob at a HAMB meet and greet at Bonneville.

    I miss my friend Bob.

    I looked forward to seeing him / spending time every year at GG Desmoines.

    With everyone else’s comments the best description of Bob was a ( noun version ) Shepherd…..
    meaning “ One who cares for and guides a group of people“

    That's Bob. Truly a road Shepherd.
    Rest In Peace my friend.
    You are missed.

    Met him just once at Back to the 50's in 2014. I yelled "Hi, Bob!", he stopped for a sec, I introduced myself, he shook my hand and grinned like I was his new best friend. Would have been great to know him. Cruise on, Bob K. :cool:

    He left before Bob. He was probably waiting for him when he arrived

    I talked to him a couple of times in Bowling Green. He was a great guy and made you feel as if you and he were the best of friends when you talked with him.

    I love how even though Bob did great things in life, he's basically gained iconic status mainly for just being one of the nicest human beings you could ever encounter. We all miss him

    Bob was the best friend one could ever have. The happiest, friendliest guy I ever had the pleasure to meet.
    I sure miss him, but smile every time I think of him...which is just about every day!

    I would run into him at events all over the country. I would always say, Good to see you again, Bobs reply was always "It is good to be seen"
