Only came across this when one of our coworkers stumbled across it on the NET when trying to look up Bob. What a shock this information was to all of us. Bob was an extremely intelligent, great coworker, team member & friend. There are many things that we remember about Bob, several being quite humorous when it came to various predicaments he had gotten himself into. When he first started working at with us in CA, his temporary workstation was physically located within a freezing server room. He tried his best to keep warm, bundling up in a hooded sweatshirt, hands clamped, pale faced, sneezing, etc... Whenever away from his machine, you’d expect to see SETI running in the background. He was notorious for ordering large lunches & eating less than half. (unless it was Szechwan or Louisiana Style BBQ) At times I would be the lucky recipient (or pig) who would get the other ½ of the burger or ½ of the chicken fried steak, etc… He was definitely a character & he’ll be greatly missed. R.I.P. Bob…

I just came across this rather stunned. He was my very best friend in School. A true gentleman and the best friend anyone could wish for. We were so alike. I will always love you Bob and treasure our memories.

perhaps like others I am discovery this post many years after it was written. I don't have a Facebook account I'm so in the last decade or more there are many people who is general whereabouts I no longer know.

this morning, my dear old friend and I were reminiscing about the days when we first met at the Art Institute in Pittsburgh. bob was not only influential in the two of us becoming a couple, which lasted seven years, but without Bob I would never have listened to the music I did, or became a vegetarian, which I still am.

Bob had three apartments in a row - one flooded, the next was infested, last there was fire. Something like that could only happen to Bob.

The last time I saw Bob, Blythe had given birth to Khylo, who we took turns swinging in the air at the beehive coffeehouse in his blue jeans and black turtleneck, a tiny chubby beatnik. If the internets is correct, looks like that beatnick is a pilot now. he should know that the EVE Online pilot Khylo minYaou was originally named after him.

So it's been nearly a decade, but I just want the people that know Bob to know, if they happen to read this, that his... Bobness had a massive influence on my life, all of it good.

Thanks Bob. Tons of love.
