I went to get a haircut today and learned of Bob's passing. The last time I was there was the day before he passed. I, as well as the community will miss him greatly. He always had a kind word to say and amazingly always remembered our previous conversation from the prior month when I was in. He was a master of his craft and a great man. Very Sincerely, David Johnson
