    Bob, Thank you for all your time and work to RMC. It was great to see you over the years at the various RMC functions but I look forward to seeing you again at the next RMC reunion (which I guess won’t happen until 2025!). All the best!

    Bob, thanks for your tireless work on behalf of all of us, for two decades! If you need any lessons in doing absolutely nothing, and enjoying it, I would be pleased to share my secrets with you. Of course, free advice is often worth what you pay for it!

    Bob, you have made significant and lasting contributions to the College, the RMC Club and to the Foundation. The likes of your work will not easily be replicated by anyone in the near future. Your career achievements were foreshadowed by your College years. Goal scoring center for the RMC Redmen against West Point in 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1974 and who in grad year achieved an engineering degree while holding a four bar position as Cadet Squadron Leader. Well done you!

    You were my CSL when I was a second year in Pontiac squadron. You showed great leadership then and have obviously demonstrated it throughout your career. Thank you for your rich contribution to the Club and Foundation during a time when others such as myself were AWAL! Hopefully some of us will pick up the pace to help keep this great institution producing great leaders.
