    Bob was one of the first people I met in Los Angeles. He and Ervin welcomed me with open arms and a love I could never express. The love and kindness he gave to others will forever be cherished. He is a perfect example of loving and care. Forever in my heart as well as many others. Bob will truly be missed and I aspire to be like him and Mac. I love you and I am honored.

  4. Hello Mac.
    I have been a friend of you and Bob’s for over thirty years and we have had some great times together. I will, and I am sure that you will also miss him very much. He used to give me hell in a fun kind of way. I will never forget him. May he RIP.

  5. Our deepest sympathy to Mac in the passing of Bob. He was a wonderful and thoughtful man. He made me very welcome when on my first holiday in USA and met Bob through a mutual friend in Los Angeles in 1975 and stayed a true friend ever since and it was always great to enjoy his company and also with Mac, a very special friendship. My niece Joy and her husband David met Bob a few times when we holidayed in the USA and had many memorable times and conversations with both Bob and Mac.
    Always wonderful memories of Bob. RIP.
