Bobby and I worked together for many years at Philip Morris. We shared an office at the B L Plant and were close friends. Bobby was a kind and supportive man and I know he will be missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace, old friend.
We are Bob’s neighbors David and JoAnn Fawley. We would catch up usually once a week at Mineral or at his mailbox in the morning when walking. He was a very gentle and caring soul. We enjoyed getting to know Bob over the last 7 years
since moving to Louisa. We are so very sorry for your loss. May loving memories comfort you and give you peace.
