I am sending sincere condolences to Patty and all of Bob's family. Bob was an interim Administrator at Newark Manor when I accepted the position of Business Office Manager. It was a pleasure and privilege to work with Bob. He treated everyone with respect and always remained calm. His sense of humor lightened a sometimes stressful day. I have made and still have his delicious Chesapeake Chicken recipe. He will always be in my favorite memories.

Bob was truly a Renaissance man. My husband, Frank, served as treasurer of the Eastern Shore Small Craft Institute for many years and was privileged to call Bob a friend. I am saddened to learn of his death. He was a gentleman and a kind hearted soul. I offer my condolences to Patty, Rob, and Kathy as well as the entire family. Bob left his mark on the world with his many talents but also with the spirit of his humanity. May he Rest In Peace.
