    Very sad! I saw this in the "In Remembrance" area a little before Christmas. He donated a few cartridges to my collection, all big thumpers!

    RIP Bob, you are missed!

He appears to have lost his fight as I sent a pm a little while ago, didn't hear back and now see his signature has changed.
    Robert helped me out on a number of occasions over the last several years with excellent insight, tips and guidance on a number of shooting topics especially my new to me 416 Ruger. He always pm'd me back promptly with advice I'll be hard pressed to replace

    If you have time please remember him with a prayer.
    I post about Bob's departure a while back. Sometimes it is hard to know where to post something so I took a shot at posting it here.

    I missed that as it's not one of the pages I visit here. I last spoke with Bob in late October or early November and he told me of the hard time he was having getting around. I sent him a pm afterwards but didn't hear back. I chalked it up to an optimistic holiday thing and went looking just a few days ago when I didn't hear from him. Much is lost without him on this sight. Thanks for posting that when you did.

    Sad to loose those we converse and communicate with here on this site. Though we may never meet face to face, they are still our friends and comrades.

    My condolences to Robert's family and loved ones.

    Boy, more sad news on the loss of another "Prince" among us. He will be greatly missed by all. May he rest in peace and my prayers go out for the family and their loss of this great man.

    Wow! Sorry to hear this. 2nd one today, too. 416 was one of the posters that I usually paid particular attention to. I think his attitude and grace was one of the reasons for this, not to mention his knowledge and experiments. He will indeed be missed. God be with him and his family and friends.
