I am a first cousin once removed on his mother’s side and knew him as a little kid in Joplin, MO. In our later years we renewed contact by email and text and sometimes by phone calls. In fact just a couple of weeks before his passing, he called and we had a nice talk. So it was a shock to hear of his passing. He was my last living relative on my father’s side. May God bless you all.

I'm still in shock as many others are. Bob was my Big Brother in our fraternity at FSU. He and Mary visited me in Valle Crucis, NC. He loved basketball. I will miss him dearly.

I was shocked to learn of Bob's passing. He was an outstanding basketball player, first at Florida State and then the stimulus behind the creation of a Wilmington Senior Basketball league. Some years ago he lead the Wilmington Senior Basketball team to Runners Up in the NC Seniors State Finals. The numerous times he lead the Wilmington team in Senior Games was a tribute to Bob's leadership. Bob left us with lasting memories. Yes, he will be missed.
