Many of you didn't know, but Bob was a recipient of multiple organ transplants in the past.
He battled his health constantly, but still managed to foster Siberian Huskies in need and even had a small dog team that he ran on the cart and sled.
He had a quick wit and I'll miss the short emails that I used to get in response to many of my posts - even if he never could figure out spell check.
Please keep his mother, Pat Ford in your thoughts.
I think the nicest thing we could all do today to remember Bob is to sign your organ donor card, if you haven't already, AND tell your family that you wish to be a organ donor. Just that card isn't enough these days.

Bob and fellow list member June Price had flown out on impulse and this is likely Devon's team.
According to June, Bob had be so happy that day. He'd come knocking on the hotel door
far earlier than she wanted to be bothered but it only took two seconds to decide that, yes,
flying out to Finger Lake sounds like a great plan.
