    I came to know Bob through the work of the American Freedom Coalition–he was one of the original Top Guns. He was a terrific guy…smart, funny but also very dedicated. He had a true heart for HF and love of America. Sad he went too soon. See you on the other side, brother. Much love and condolences to his family.

    I had the good fortune to work with Bob here in Tampa on UPF activities in 2010. Bob was always supportive and totally dedicated to the work. I will miss my good friend, Bob.

    I first met Bob in 1988 in New Hampshire. Bob’s deep heart, his love for God, True Parents, and for God’s providence in America will be forever remembered. May his descendants continue his good tradition.
