Since getting the call from Steve I have been thinking a lot about Bob and my time working with him.

He is the one who back in 1988 took a chance by giving me an opportunity to work as a Sales Rep. in Cincinnati. He was my advocate and the reason I was given the job. I quickly saw Bob's unique Leadership skills first hand. He had built an operation that was close-knit and focused. Everyone had each others' backs. We had fun while having business success. My 26 year old self did not know how useful working with Bob would be, until I gained more experience and more responsibility.

Bob knew where to go in Downtown Cincinnati and Price Hill to get a hamburger, fries, coleslaw, and a drink all for under $3 dollars. He would always have a large glass of whole milk.

Upon moving to Cincinnati Bob was showing my wife and I around downtown. Traffic was stopped. Didn't stop Bob. He drove up on and over a sidewalk to get us out of the jam. Using one of his many lines......."Don't like the way I drive, get off the sidewalk". Our eyes were as big as saucers. LOL

He could troubleshoot elevators over the phone like no ones business. I remember hearing him telling the Technician to slow down, go get a coffee, think about the steps you have done so far, clear your mind, and then go back and look at the problem. It was amazing how many elevators were fixed with that approach. An approach that works on more than elevators. The core group of Tom H., Jim E., John T, Wes L., Mike W. Mike C. and Charlie E., Kathy S. and Ronnie W. were the best.

So Bob begins working on the big gold elevator we used to talk about.

Susan and I would like to pass along our condolences to his entire family, and all his friends. I wish we could be there with you.
