  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. Even though he hasn’t worked at GE in several years and I never worked directly with him, I can still picture his smile and hear his laugh. He was very memorable. 🙂

  2. Lots of fond memories of Bob. He always had my utmost respect. Blessings to the family.

  3. Bob was an outstanding individual to work for; I learned a great deal from him; and as a result patterned about a decade of my working life by his example. I enjoyed his sense of humor and admired his leadership ability. Just told a friend that I’d have followed him anywhere (and did to four countries). He will be missed and wishing all the best for Karen and his family including Bob Jr. whom I was also blessed to work with. God Speed-

  4. I remember Bob Sr from many years ago. What a pleasure to work with. Thoughts and prayers for his family in these times. While working through grief I am sure the joy of him will shine through.

  5. It saddens me greatly to learn of Bob’s passing. I worked with him and for him for many years both as business development manager and as engineering project manager for several international programs. He was an inspiration and I learned much from him. He was highly respected and an outstanding team mate on our many endeavors. He was sorely missed after his well earned retirement. I was very saddened my his being taken by Parkinson so early. My heart felt condolences to Karen, Bob Jr. Who I also worked with and to all his family.
