So sorry to hear this. Bob was my Supervisor when I worked at Jones Truck Lines and then was my boss when I worked at 4 State Poultry Supply. He and Helen were great people to know and work with.

My first concert to go to after moving to Arkansas was with Bob, Helen and Gloria Fowlkes. Bob drove us to the BOK in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We had a great time.

It was always a pleasure to be with Bob. A very hard working and principled guy. A loyal employee and very bright businessman who treated all with respect.

Bob and Helen were good friends and I had highest respect for them. Bob was always there when needed. I am saddened with the loss.
