    Wow, what terrible news! Bob was a great resource; a researcher with both a strong academic background and an acute business sense. He was also an incredibly nice guy, offering help wherever he perceived a need. I enjoyed our discussions and appreciated his advice.

    I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. Bob and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
