I have so many great memories of working with Bob and Connie. His dry sense of humor fascinated me and occasionally got us both in trouble! His family was his world. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.

Connie, Lindsey and Kendall I’m absolutely devastated to hear of Bob’s passing. I first met Bob at 3901 SW Loop 820, later working for him in Dallas in the RMC. He was one of my all time favorite bosses and I often said I’d work for him again in a heartbeat. Always enjoyed Bob’s dry sense of humor and appreciated that he was a kind, knowledgeable and fair manager. My love and prayers are with y’all…
