Thoughts, Hugs and Prayers!. Such a wonderful and amazing man. I have memories of stopping by the Brown house on Dakota St. with dad to visit Bob and Elaine. Bob was such a great mentor and friend to my father during their years at the electric department. I know Bruce considered Bob and Elaine as family and admired them both.
