I am very late to the game as I just saw the announcement on NET Systems website. Still, I was just talking about Bob the other day when recounting bygone days. I was a vendor to NET Systems with ZERO connection with his department, but he embraced me as a key partner to the overall business. We broke bread and shared some other refined yeast products (i.e., beers) on my trips to Bainbridge Island. I mourn for his loss with his family and friends.

I am not sure about the exact date ~1981, but when I found out Bob had a welding background I asked him if he would set up a welding shop for us. The main product was to be sales of higher efficiency otterboards (called Doors in western states). Bob agreed and we never looked back.  I supplied the engineering background and Bob the practical side of what was possible and economical.  Bob eventually took over the door design entirely.  We at NETS were a good team--always.  Bob was well respected by his welders and everyone else.  The whole history of NETS included brain storming, laughing at mistakes and successes and always hard working.  Bob was big part of this.  After he retired he left us too early.

I enjoyed working with Bob for all of the 27 years I worked at NET Systems. He had a big heart and will be missed. I am thankful that we reconnected after his cancer diagnosis and were able to talk. I am glad he was able to enjoy the quilt I made him even though he wanted to hang it in the wall! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
