I worked with Bob at The Hartford throughout the 80’s and found him to be one of the nicest people it has been my pleasure to meet, work with or work for. Bob was a real gentlemen and was at his best when things got difficult. My sincere condolences to his family and I can’t imagine Bob loosing his beloved Jean only days earlier. He will be missed by all who knew him even a little bit.
