Dear family of Bob and Debbie, I’m so sorry for the loss of your father. Bob was a gentle and sweet guy. He mad us laugh many times. I loved the time I spent with all of you.

I regret that I am unable to attend the funeral for Bob. Bob was my manager for many years at Allison. Bob was a great man and leader. He had to be to wrangle the team he was given to lead. We worked hard and we had fun. Bob was missed when he left, know that Bob was well loved by his Allison family.
