I had the pleasure of working with Bob at Farminton High School. He was a compassionate counselor and a kind co-worker. I witnessed his interactions with troubled students and their parents and was amazed at his calm, understanding, yet firm demeanor. I am privileged and honored to have worked with him. He was a beautiful human being.
