    I was sadden to hear of passing of Bob. Many years ago in June of 1964 Bob hired me as a draftsman in the Machinery Systems Drafting Group at Carrier. I was just out of college and beginning my career. That was the beginning of over 35 years for me at Carrier. I really appreciated Bob giving me a chance to work for Carrier. I did run into Bob at the Post Office in Chittenango many years ago and we spent several minutes reminiscing about the old days. My sincere condolences to your family.
