I have very fond memories of you Bob. I always remember you sitting on the edge of your chair, watching and cheering, for the Atlanta Braves. Growing up you Connie, Dale, and Cindy were like my extended family. My deepest condolences to all of you and your families.

Bob you are a great man. You taught me so much not only about softball but life in general. You and Connie were amazing to me. You are going to be greatly missed by me and so many. Rest in Peace coach. I love you.
