I met Bob over 20 yrs ago when I selling advertising for Peninsula Times Tribune and he was one of my customers. I continued to have him as a customer when I went to work for the Los Altos Town Crier. A kinder, nicer person would be hard to find. He will be missed by those who knew and worked with him.

We met Bob when he contacted us through our business. We had already heard such great things about him from other locals, and it was a real pleasure to meet him & visit at his beautiful home. More recently I had email with Bob about some framing that I was going to bring to him (and still will, to honor his effort) and as others say about him he just couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Every local we have spoken with about this is terribly sad and talks about what a great person & neighbor he was. We are very sorry & he will be very missed. Georgia (Skyline Blvd, La Honda)
