Hey Virgil / anyone who might know & care,
I'd known the man for well over a decade - first made his acquaintance when
he became a customer of the boutique Hi-End audio outfit I used to work
for. Spent a lot of phone-time working with him, trying to get various
issues sorted out in his system. Only met in person on one occasion, when
he came to visit in St. Paul..
But that was all well over ten years back, and we've stayed in-touch -
loosely at times - ever since. A few years back, when car trouble stranded
my wife in the Chicagoland area, Bob was nice enough to "take over" and see
her through to a safe place to stay, and get her vehicle repaired. At that
time, it had been at least two or three years since we'd last spoken, and
the moment I called on him he was just "right there" to do whatever was
needed to help - and quite late at night, for that matter. I think I phoned
him at around 11-12PM.
Since those days, we'd mostly kept in touch via his dollartothegiant at gmail
dispatches - but all of that stopped, very suddenly, about two months ago.
It was around that time when I received a note from him, mentioning that he
was in hospital with end-stage pancreatic cancer. Of course, I mailed him
immediately - and he called me the next morning, but I missed it. Then we
played a round of tag' - and that was the last of him.
Really sorry to know he's gone. We need more men like him, in this great
nation of ours.
