I had the privilege of knowing Bob for a number of years shooting on the same co-ed pool team as a partner and team mate. He was one hell of pool player and I learned alot from him. I will truly miss seeing him every day and talking pool with him. Thoughts and prayers to the family. Rest in peace Bob!
