    I remember Bob so well from my years at Nuclear Metals! When my daughter was a baby, I took a third shift job on the CAF line and a few months later had an injury (not work-related) that required surgery. I didn’t have close to enough sick time to cover the time I’d be on crutches. I thought I’d have to quit, but Bob made it possible for me to work in Quality doing 100% inspections and other sit-down tasks that the day shift would save up for me to take care of during the night. I did go back to the CAF line for a while, but not much later I was offered the new job of roving process auditor with flexible hours—a perfect opportunity for a young mother. He didn’t have to do that, but he did and I was incredibly grateful. The other thing about Bob that I will never forget, is how very proud he was of his sons…every one of them!

    Dear Anne and family,
    Condolences to you all. I remember Bob as a good man and supportive friend during our years at NMI, also as one of the few there that had as many kids and grandchildren as I.

    Anne and family, my deepest sympathies at your loss. Bob hired me at NMI in 1977 and 10 months later told me about an opening in the Sales Department. I told him I wasn’t that interested, to which he replied,”well I think you’d be a damn fool not to apply “. Bob cared enough to be direct and changed my life. A very good man
