As a court stenographer in Delaware County, I worked with Bob for many years at zoning and supervisors' meetings in various townships. He was such a fine gentleman to work with. He was also my personal attorney, He was a man of high principles and showed respect for everyone. I can't say enough about him . He was a good man.
