Even for a lurker like me, he was a well known inmate and I recall his posts always being of interest.

Really Sad to hear this

I read this yesterday, and woke up this morning and felt compelled to post here.

I didn't know him like some of you guys.

But I had spoke to him a number of times last year about wiring and some other things about my project I'm doing.

He was Uber knowledgeable about anything and anybody BMW wise, and other things. Very entertaining and informative to talk to, and was genuinely an overall Nice Guy.

I think it would have been a privilege to be able to call him your friend. And in the end of it all, that's all we really have.

Me too, haven't been around this place for awhile, but liked Robt and always liked his style. I bought some parts from him that required expert/honest description and all was always good.
On the phone we BSed about lathes and other machining tools. I believe it was a major love of his. Maybe as much as motor bikes were.
RIP Robert-

Visit

I had a nice visit with Robert's wife yesterday. She is sadden by Robert's lost and moving forward in her life. I told her that inmates still come to this thread to leave remarks and express their loss.

I know Alita appreciates the messages keep them coming.

Such a great shot....I want to see more. I'm jealous you knew him, but he had an effect on me as I think about him everytime I log on. Wondering if someone can remind me what spot named a sandwhich after him.....or something like that??
