    I had the pleasure to work with Bob at The Gladstone Schools. I was new as a driver and Bob was always there to help out. I recall how Bob would come to work an hour early when it snowed, and he would shovel a path around all of the buses and start them up for everyone and leave a piece of candy on the seat. We called him “The bus Angel”. Bob was a true gentleman and he is certainly in heaven now.
