I am deeply saddened at the news of Bob's passing away. I had the privilege of working with him at Wako Electronics USA as my colleague for over 15 years. He was a man of high moral, ethical and personal values. He will be missed. My condolences to Becky, Shane and all his extended family - Shahid ikram

Hi Becky,
Sorry for your loss. Bob was a good man and I had a good time working with him at Wako. I will remember the times kidding each other about IU and UK. He always spoke of the love he had for you and his family.
