I had the pleasure of working with Bob for many years at Agway. If you were to look up "true gentleman" in the dictionary you would see a picture of Bob. I never saw him without a big smile on his face. I'm so glad we had a chance to re-connect at a recent HR luncheon. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob's family.

One of the MOST INFLUENTIAL individuals at Agway, Bob guided the careers of many. As a champion of leadership development in Agway, the lessons learned under his direction are as relevant today.

Bob's sense of style complemented his contagious smile, setting the stage of putting all he met at ease.

Sending thoughts of comfort to Bob's family and friends.

Bob was a very important person to our family, a one of a kind. He always had a quick smile and we loved his delightful sense of humor. Bob was always so kind and there to help or give advise whenever he could. Our grandson from Iowa considered him a friend too and loved to visit with Bob. My heart is empty at the loss of such a friend. Hugs and Love to you all...

We both worked at Agway and found Bob to be one of the "best". Always a smile and a kind word. Our sympathy goes out to you, his family.

I actually just heard about Bob's passing. My deepest sympathies to his family. He was, without a doubt, one of the nicest people I have ever known. I had the honor and pleasure of working with him at Agway, where he was loved and respected by everyone.
