  3. Bob was truly a mentor for me in my trucking life. He and I met in 1984 at Memphis. He taught me how to be a better trucker and how to co.pete in the Truck Driving Championships. We were friends from then on and he will be missed. Some people come through your life and create good memories but there a few that make a difference. Thank you, Bob!

    To my Aunt Janet,
    That was such a beautiful service and the pictures brought back wonderful memories. The song at the end was so fitting and I know Uncle Robert is back “on the road again”.
    Love you,
