Bob was a dear friend of both John and I.   We were fortunate to have reconnected after he graduated from North Western University in Evanston, IL.   He was lucky to pursue his passion in wring and publication.  And we got to know his beautiful wife Liz and their two children.   When Bob unexpectedly died from a very infectious pneumonia , we lost track of his family.  Liz, if you see this, please know how much we all loved Bob, was so happy he found happiness with you, and we miss him terribly to this day.
