My husband and I met Bob a few months ago when we joined “The Breakfast Club” at Dave’s Deli. He was a wonderful, intelligent and witty man. He always had a terrific, interesting story to tell. He talked about the good times he had traveling with his children and fascinating stories about his experiences in the Korean War. We didn’t know him long but he made our lives much richer. We will miss his sweet smile and kindness.
