Elizabeth and Sally, I am thankful for the time Patsy and I spent with Bob when he would drop by to share his cd's with us. He liked when I would put his cd in my player because he could feel and hear the audio better with my audio system. He would smile and say it sounded better on my system. I will always treasure the time we spent talking about amateur radio and our lengthy hobby through the years. We spent a lot of time "on the air" talking about radio and checking into the South Carolina Single Sideband Net. I know he enjoyed this because being net control was a dream of his. God bless and keep you in the future!

An ultimate neighbor for about 45 years. Many of those a customer of mine also. If we all lived the life Bob did our world would be much better place. Raise a wonderful family with wife Elizabeth and daughter Sally. May the memories and satisfaction of ministering to his needs be a comfort to Elizabeth and Sally during the days ahead. Though limited we are here if you need us,

Our dear Bob, we will so miss your wonderful deep voice on the South Carolina Single Sideband Net. Your nightly checking in brightened all our days. I especially will miss our upcoming recording session with Brandon. Be assured my brother, you and I will finish our recording and present it to our God. After all, it is for Him that we use our musical talent . I will always love you my brother. Please save me a spot in the music department.
God bless you. Well Done Good and Faithful Servant, Well Done
