The first time I met Bob and Nancy was when I was asked by Tom Farley and Bob Sutton to address a group of soccer players at a camp called Silton Soccer Camp. I had just arrived in New Jersey in 1977. Little did I know that our relationship would become so strong and real. I love “Do’ers” and Bob was always the one to figure anything out in a split second. The man just had an incredible knack for making quick, sound decisions. Just before I retired last year from New Jersey Gravel and Sand Co. out of the blue Bob walked in. We had such a nice conversation and I told him how much I appreciated his friendship. We have very recently moved to North Carolina, and as I type this I just can’t get Bob’s piercing eyes, one of a kind smile, and a firm handshake out of my mind. God bless you Nancy. I will never forget your husband, my friend! I
