Robbie,

You've been my best friend for the last 32 years. We've been together thru thick and thin. You've always had my back and supported me when I was down. We've enjoyed a great number of trips together all over this world. You've introduced me to the better things in life and taught me there was more to food than just sustenance. We learned to dive together in Guam, ate great food in Budapest, almost die in Czechoslovakia on New Years day, ran out of gas on the Autobahn and finished a combat bottle of Soju in Korea. I have so many memories of you over the years and I am eternally grateful for knowing you. YOU have made me a better man and taught me what is to be even keeled and not angry all the time. You're with Jim and Granite now. Say hi to them for me and I'll see you on the other side my brother. I love you Robbie.

Boss Rob,

You have been a great friend, a mentor, and a father figure to me for so many years. You taught me so much about so many things. There are the obvious things like advanced troubleshooting and repair of electronics, but the real education was when we would just sit and chat. You taught me that mixing a little bit of pork with ground beef could take a dish from good to extravagant. Seeping bratwurst in beer before grilling brings out the flavor. You could fold a bag of chips in a perfect way so they stayed close after opening it. Coming and talking to you was always the highlight of my day. You were so well traveled and well versed, that we could just talk about anything we felt like. From analyzing different comedians jokes to discussing the calculations an archerfish has to make while spitting at insects from underwater. We could discuss movie plots and cinematography, or we could talk about human nature and psychology. You left a grapefruit on your desk just to see how much moisture it could release and loved to experiment. You always had candy for everyone who came by. I'm a much more knowledgable and better person for having you in my life. We will have another drink together someday, and be able to hang out again. I love you Robbie.
