Michele and family. My deepest sympathies as well. I worked with Bob for 33 years and Michelle for a few years as well. I was just with Bob at his retirement party Seems like yesterday and remember talking to him every time I dropped a vehicle off with him about retirement. We had so many great times in the lane together. My prayers are with all of you. Chad Farah and Family

Prayers for Bob's family. What a loss! I was a grade school and high school classmate. Bob and I would run into each other unexpectedly around town. It was a pleasure to see him. I will miss our chance meetings.
