It was a pleasure to work with my great friend Bob during my seven years at B&W.  I had the opportunity to accompany Bob and travel through his territory a couple of times.  Never have I seen a manufacturer representative enter a store and be greeted with hugs & high fives like I saw happen at every visit I did with Bob.  I don’t know anyone that didn’t just absolutely love the man.  One of the kindest, most sincere, and loyal people I’ve ever met, and with a laugh that was infectious.
Bob taught me a lot about bourbon, betting on horses, and how to be a better person.
I spoke with him very shortly before he passed, and I’m glad that my final words to him were that I loved him.  And I truly do.
Rest well my friend.  I miss you.
