Marie, Sharon, and family, I am so sorry to hear about Bob's passing. I always enjoyed stopping by when he was washing his truck or just sitting in the garage. He was great company and a pleasure to be around. I, as well as the rest of my family, will miss him dearly. Our hearts and prayers go out to you all. Dean, Laura and family.

Lost touch with Bob over the years but have fond memories - we were young, just out of the service and working Piedmont's ramps at ORF, hanging out in the old employees parking lot after work in the middle of the night - the Fiat 850, Triumph GT-6, the Hnonda with extended forks - drinking Busch. Prayers to Marie, Bob's family and loved ones. Bob will be missed. Rick and Judy Kane

My sincere condolences to Bob's entire family for your loss. I first met Obe in 1978 after graduating College and joining the Piedmont family in Norfolk. I knew right off that Bob was special. His leadership qualities where very apparent to me. His compassion for his fellow co-workers, sense of humor and all around good nature always extremely impressed me. Rest in peace Obe and THANK YOU for your service. SKI
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
