  3. I worked with Bob in 1979, when I was bay College co-op Broadcast Engr. at WDBC. I remember the first week with him he was soldering broken ground radial wires at AM station tower. It was summer, after a couple minutes we accidentally caught the grass on fire and it started to spread so fast we could not put it out. I had to run 400-500 yards back the transmitter building and call the fire dept. That was quite day to remember… we also spent numerous midnight shifts in Cornell at the FM tower.

    Bob taught me a lot, he will be missed. May God comfort you at this time.
