  1. I first met Bob when he was in ninth grade, and I in eighth. Later, I got to know him better when I went to work summers at Western Auto, long before He owned it. He was a great guy to work with, and a good friend. Also, he taught me a lot about cars, gas engines, and other mechanical things. My wife and Bob’s late wife Gladys were also good friends from being in a quilting group together. Although I only saw him occasionally in recent years, he was still a good friend. I will miss him!
