Jane and family, I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a great mentor to me when I was hired to deliver RR1 in Rutland, giving me tips and encouraging me to stick with it saying, "The first day here is the worst and your last day will be the best". He also said " Get yourself a right-hand drive to deliver your route as soon as possible. He was so right on both and I will always remember him as being a quiet source of dry wit and common sense. RIP, Rip.
