My deepest condolences to all of you. Bob worked with me at the Science Center. He was a wonderful co-worker and I am so sorry to learn of his passing. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
Very sad and shocked to learn of Bob’s passing. Although I only spoke to Bob a few times as we worked at the St. Louis Science center together, he was very social and always had a warm smile.
I will miss seeing him at the St. Louis Science Center.
My sincere condolences to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
I’m so sorry and shocked by Bob’s passing. I only knew him for the two years he worked at Busch Stadium, but we hit it off from the start and I enjoyed knowing him. I still have a text and photos he sent me when he went to Peru. I’ll treasure those. Praying for your family.
Bob was a great guy to work and speak with at Busch Stadium. He enjoyed sharing the game experience with the fans he met at the gate and in the stands. My condolences and prayers go out to you all. -Gene Marquez
