My father called me today and informed me of Bob's passing. I was sorry to hear this news. Bob was a good friend to me all through school. (Big Bob) as I called him and I had many fishing trips together as kids, and I loved hanging out at his house and the Rogers Lure's Factory there located on their property. One day when I was in the 7th grade and being picked on by some older kids, Big Bob came along and hit them with his football gear that he was carrying over his sholder and told them to leave me along. They did. He was a good friend and was sorry to hear of his death. My prayers and thought are with your family during this time of loss. Alan Seibel
