    I was sorry to hear of Bob’s death. I had not seen him for some time, but we used to encounter each other at the grocery store in Rapid, and would have a chat, usually about memories from childhood…and what was happening in the woods. We Sinclairs always appreciated our Cannon connections. God bless you all.

    Bob and I were close friends for almost 30 years. We’ve shot alot of pool together (either at our favorite tavern or in my basement). We played cards on a weekly basis with both of us keeping score. Bob was a very competitive sportman. Durring the summer months we would go to Gladstone or Escanaba and watch the senior boys baseball tournaments. Bob and I are both Detroit Tiger fans. During Football season, we watched alot of games together, Bob was a Packer fan and I a Lion fan. I am extremely greatful to Keith Virgo and Ray Walker for taking Bob and I to the Packer/Lion game in October. Keith had won suite tickets to the game and invited Bob and I to come along. Bob was very jubilant that he was able to watch his favorite team from a luxury box seat.

    Bob was also close to my Dad Art who passed away in March of this year. Bob often helped celebrate Art or Josie’s birthday by attending a luncheon at Hong Kong buffett or Ferdinands Mexican restaurant. Whenever Bob would visit and Art was over, they managed to squeeze in a game of pool or two. My Dad and I attended several cookouts at Bob’s camp in Rapid River and always enjoyed watching the deer come in. I will miss my friend Bob a great deal and I know that Bob and my Dad Art are organizing a pool and poker party getting it ready for when I go to join them.

    I have several minutes of video footage of Bob if anyone would like a copy please feel free to contact me.
