So sorry to have lost a terrific uncle. I always looked forward to seeing him at the festival car shows and occasionally jogging on the trail. What a great sense of humor he had and was always happy and smiling. That always made me feel good even when I wasn’t having a good day. I will miss him greatly. Hey, Uncle Bob…say “Hi” to Dad and tell everyone up there we miss them all and think of them often! Love Ya!!
