I'm hoping somebody in the kno--w can pass this along to Bob's friends on the Banjo Hangout. He died from a fall on 8-28-18. He is sorely missed by me (his sig. other) and maybe some folks here.
Sad to hear. Sorry for your loss.
Bob was a real gentleman and really a nice guy. He helped me (over the internet) with some finishing questions on a Gibson repro neck that I was making. I also thought his description of what went on at Gibson when Greg Rich walked out the door was really interesting. I am sure that Bob had many friends at Gibson and in the banjo community. He will be missed. So sorry to hear about his passing.
I was shocked when I found that Bob had passed away, we'd had been emailing each other for a long time, he came in about the time I was leaving Gibson....and all of a sudden he didn't answer and a few days later I was talking to Nick Kimmons and he gave me the bad news. Bob was a great guy.
