In my travels to many Case New Holland plants, I’ve met a number of people, however, Bob stood out as a genuine guy who was committed to getting the job done. I, as well as a number of others at CNH, will miss Bob as he was quick to lend a hand and, more importantly, be a friend. Kelly Burgess

CandleI worked with Bob while we were both employed by PPG. Bob was a sweet, kind man who was always smiling. I enjoyed many conversations with Bob. We wouldn't see each other for years and would see each other randomly here and there. I always loved seeing Bob and chatting about life. Rest easy old friend. I love that you bought a van to take your grandkids for ice cream...that says it all about you!! Rhonda Bentley
