    Sadly, I just learned of Bob’s passing today. Bob and I worked at EDS together and after he retired, we stayed in contact. Through his new business venture (Syntax Communications) we formed a new bond. Bob and I shared some jobs together via our business alliance and even worked on both my homes. Unfortunately, that was the last time I saw him as he and his sidekick Luis were wrapping up the work at my home. In all our conversations whether at EDS or Syntax, regardless of what would happen, he would always remind me to “Keep Smiling”. A compassionate, caring and noble co-worker and friend he will truely be missed. ❤️
