I am very saddened to know of Bob's passing. My sincere sympathy the his wife Janice and all the family. I was a fellow employee with Bob at the Arsenal and also enjoyed attending sporting events with him and Dan Wessel and others at various times. I didn't really know Bob all that well, but I did find him to be a really nice guy. I'm sure he was also a devoted husband and family man. May he rest in peace. Sincerely, Bob Cook (Moline)
