I have know Bob since 1974 when he hired me to move to Elk Grove Village to work for him at Panlmatic. He was the best boss a guy could ask for. I will miss his funny personally and most of all him. His famous saying was when he dies he wants to be put in a nema 4 enclosure with a window and put in the shop to watch everyone to make sure they are working. I hope to meet him one day whether up or down. God's speed my best friend

Bob was one of my bosses when I worked for Panlmatic Company in the '80s and '90s. He is a very nice gentleman and fun to work with. I truly miss him. May God's comfort be with his family in this time of grief.
