Terrible news.  Bob was always so friendly and willing to help me out with any questions I had with great knowledge and kind guidance.  RIP Marine, you will be missed.

Great guy - set up next to him at a Fort Worth gun show a few years ago - enjoyed passing the time speaking with him. Sad to hear he is gone!

Getting a medal means two things:

1. Someone saw you do it.

2. You didn't tick off the approval chain.

I also didn’t know him, but I’ve enjoyed seeing his posts over the years. His was one of those names you see a lot around the forum and that certainly speaks to his contribution to the hobby and all of our knowledge. Praying for him and his family.

This is sad news. I just did a deal with Bob last month and was thinking last week of circling back with him for some more RAF badges. A stand up gentleman all around. He will be missed.

Collecting Marine Raider Groups

On the battlefield, Pfc Edward Ahrens, an Able Company BAR man, lay dying, soaked in his own blood.

 

As his company commander, Lew Walt cradled him in his arms, he surveyed the scene around them. Nearby lay a Japanese officer, a sergeant, and thirteen enlisted men, all dead. Ahrens had been shot twice in the chest and bayoneted three times. He whispered to Walt, "Captain, they tried to come over me last night, but I don't think they made it." Choking back tears, Walt replied softly, "They didn't, Eddy. They didn't."

I’m just shocked over this news. Bob was always kind and generous with his time and knowledge with me both on this forum and in person. A gentleman and a scholar but above all a good man. Always took time to shoot the bull with me whenever I stopped by his table to say hello. I pray for his family to have peace and him to have rest. 

RIP My Stinky Faced Jumbo, the sweetest, most loving giant dog he touched the heart and life of everyone he came in contact with. He is a joyful spirit and I miss him greatly

Shocked!  Had a email conversation with Bob last month no mention of problems. He and I shared tables at The Great Western several times and his

 

knowledge was always a great help. He will be missed by many including myself. R.I.P. Marine!

Bob was a true friend to all in the collector community, a proud United States Marine and American. His knowledge about all things Marine but most importantly his friendly way of connecting with his fellow historians will be greatly missed. God Bless his family in this time of grief.

Rest in Peace Marine!
