I am so sorry for Your loss. Bob was One of THE Most Memorable employees that was Privileged to work with! He was one of the Most Influential People in My Career at Ford! He taught me... Not Only about 'Vinyl Tops'! Bob taught me a LOT about How to BE a 'Boss': How to be Part of a 'TEAM' - how to 'build a 'TEAM' - how to TRUST that Team! I am Honored to have Honored to have known and worked with Bob, and I extend to my Deepest and most Sincere Condolences.
