I first met Bob at River Valley Ranch in Maryland in the early '60's when I was but a boy of around 11 or 12. After college, worked for Moody Bible Institute for 30 plus years. One day about 20 years ago, though about Bob, looked up his contact information, and called him just to say hello. So sorry to now learn of his passing. Sincere condolences to the entire family.

Bob always had a smile on his face. Always.
Bob loved our Lord.....as evidenced by Bob's smile.
Bob played the piano with gusto, joy, as well as many other positive
attributes; mostly Bob enjoyed playing the piano for our Lord (I believe)
as well as the joy he received himself as he played.
I know I, my husband Jack Forrest and so many in our Sunday class so
enjoyed Bob's playfulness, willingness to receive requests; weekly playing
'Onward Christian Soldier's' for our WWII veterans, as
