Brigitte, Mike and families of Bobby (as I knew him):
My heart is broken at the passing of Bobby. He never got to cook us that special meal at our camp on the mountain, or help plan a Machmer Reunion, or come for a visit on his 4 wheeler. I know I speak for all when I say we shall miss him deeply - the mountain will miss him.
Our love and prayers to all...
