Bob was a great guy. He and my dad (Paul Turner) where great friends. I don’t know if he told you about the time he took my dad fishing in a dad fell into the lake . I don’t know if Bob took him back out, again. True story

To the Fijalkowski family…so sorry for your loss. I worked with Bob at IH Shadyside (Navistar) and always thought he was a really nice, intelligent guy. I see a lot of his traits in Mark as I’ve got to know him in the athletic world in Shadyside.

We are saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Bob will be missed. Growing up with the Filjakowski family in Neffs has rekindled many memories of the great conversations that Bob and I discussed and solved all the worlds problems “ according to Bob “. The evenings when he would stop by our house and visit while he made his rounds along Belmont Street. For the family May the pain of his passsing be short and soon replaced by the memories of his life. May the fishing in heaven be the best waters you have traveled. RIP my friend!
